HISTORY ALIVE - Pioneer Life 101 - An Insider’s Look to Kitchen Gardens, Cooking, and Everyday Life as A Homesteader

Date(s): Sep 21, 2019
Time: 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Dunwoody Preservation Trust presents Katie Hendrickson, a local Dunwoody-ian, who will share a Living History- style program that will cover topics related to managing a pioneer home and kitchen garden. Cooking was a major part of each day. Early settlers raised their own meat, kept bees, and managed hens for eggs. Large gardens yielded vegetables, fruit, and herbs for canning, pickling, and drying. Root cellars stored potatoes, carrots, and onions. Milk was separated into cream for butter and baking. Ms. Hendrickson will discuss the role of authentic antique kitchen tools and cooking methods; including wooden coffee grinders, handmade tin cookie cutters, hand crank eggbeaters, drying techniques and Dutch oven cooking.  Her presentation will explore the use of medicinal herbs and the important role insects had to the early settlers of the area.

When:  Saturday, September 21, 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

Where:  Donaldson-Bannister Farm, 4831 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody

Cost: $3 for Dunwoody Preservation Trust members, $5 non-members – No Reservations Required
