Workshop Wrap-Up: Just One of the Stories Behind the Food

Our oral history workshop is coming to a close. We spent the week learning all about the art of the interview, as well as how to process and archive files. We finished our time together by crafting this short audio slideshow of our visit with Doug Davis of Yokna Bottoms Farm.

As the twelve students who took part in this year's workshop make their way towards home, they're taking the skills they acquired back with them--to Georgia, Michigan, Texas, New York, California, Mississippi, and Louisiana. 

Go forth and document! Or, in the words of one workshop participant, "Biscuits, bacon, okra--onward!"
