Feast for the Ears
New Hampshire Stories from the Field, the Table, the Restaurant Kitchen and More!
Living in New Hampshire under a year of pandemic-related isolation brought forth for many a silver lining: an opportunity to reconnect with our land, with businesses in our local communities, and with locally grown foods.
Just in time for spring planting and garden planning, join NHPR for a magical evening of New Hampshire-focused storytelling celebrating our local food system.
Last December, the Monadnock Farm and Community Coalition staged an online virtual event, “Stories From the Field: Celebrating our Local Food System in Words,” hosted by NHPR’s Kate McNally. In a similar style to The Moth storytelling hour, local folks in the region who grow, educate about, prepare, advocate for or eat locally grown food shared personal stories about their connections to our food system.
This virtual feast now comes to the NHPR airwaves, via a one-hour broadcast called “Stories from the Field: A Special Broadcast from the Monadnock Farm & Community Coalition and NHPR.” Kate McNally, the host of NHPR’s The Folk Show, will again host this event, now designed for broadcast.
Tune in this Saturday, May 1, to hear stories from four regional storytellers:
- Jordan Scott, chef at Machina Kitchen & ArtBar in Keene
- Beth Hodge of Echo Farm Puddings in Hinsdale
- Holly Gowdy of Brookfield Organic farm in Walpole
- Marty Castriotta, Village Roots Permaculture in East Alstead
Saturday, May 1 at 4 p.m. (the special will air in the place normally occupied by The Moth Radio Hour).
Sunday, May 2 at 10 p.m. (a rebroadcast, airing in place of Outside/In).
