Harvest Festival in Sawyerville

 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Autumn will inhabit the Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 12, in Sawyerville in the Cookshire-Eaton municipality. The organizing committee plans a panoply of activities, each more interesting than the one before. Starting at 9 a.m. at the Hôtel-Auberge de Sawyerville at 18 Principale St. E., Yvan Perreault will talk about his experience growing nut trees.

At the same time, Marc Nault is to begin assembling the beams and joists to construct the shelter in the to-be-inaugurated "Dr. Lowry's Garden" at the Sawyerville Community Garden. Nault is the president of the Eaton Corner Museum. The structure was prepared with the participation of engineer Steven St-Cyr, Daniel Hurdle, Claude Thibodeau and Jacques Campeau. This activity will take place on site at the Community Garden, near the ballpark on Route 210.

At 10 a.m., Perreault is to lead an excursion to identify and collect edible plants in meadows and forests. At 10:30 a.m. is the official inauguration of Dr. Lowry's Garden. At 11 a.m., biologist and seed-saver Brian Creelman will share his considerable knowledge about late-autumn gardening. At noon is a lunch created from vegetables grown in the Community Garden and other local foodstuffs. The meal costs only $8 per adult and $2 per child.

At 1 p.m., Elsa Poulin will demonstrate how to produce, harvest, process and market berries, nuts and non-woody forest products. Poulin is part of the Coopérative de solidarité Cultur'Innov. She will also respond to questions about developing the potential of participants' fields or forests. Workshop leaders at the Festival will offer a variety of subjects such as extracting apple juice the old-fashioned way, germinating seeds, braiding garlic, making up and creating corn-cob dolls for children. Sarah Hui and Gert Janssens of the D'Orée Farm, and the herbalist-therapist Chantal Parent will have kiosks to visit. A representative of the Atelier Libertad, maker of garden tools, will display their collection. Delegates of the Eaton Corner Museum will speak about horticultural techniques during the period of about 1830, based on their experimental garden behind the Foss House. Under the encouraging hand of Chantal Bolduc, initiator of the project and the volunteer of the Sawyerville Community Garden, the day promises to offer some priceless knowledge about a multitude of subjects.
