Listen to this story
NCPR is media sponsor for the Adirondack Rural Skills and Homesteading Festival this Saturday (10-to-4) at the Paul Smiths VIC. Exhibitions will include logging and farming with horses, and competitive lumberjack sports with the Paul Smiths College Woodsmen's Team. Workshops range from canning and cider making to wood working and small-scale farming. Paul Smiths College professor Brett McLeod calls these "lost arts", and he told Todd Moe that the event is all about learning from past generations.
