Brand new exhibition celebrates local food and farming

July 8, 2013 by  

The ‘Breadbasket: Seed to Spoon Exhibition’ is being presented by the Rock County Historical Society as part of the Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center presentation, which is a yearlong exhibition designed to educate guests about this region’s food history.

Postcard printing, brochure printing, and poster printing were most likely used to spread the word about this exhibit, which opened on July 5 but will be available for almost a full year.

The exhibit offers the opportunity to learn about the food history in this area. As part of the program, food pantries in this area will receive a portion of the benefits, and guests will be able to enjoy various exhibits, explore multimedia gallery displays, learn about healthy eating habit, obtain local resources to fresh and homemade foods, and find out more about Rock County’s own food traditions.

Over its duration, the exhibit will change monthly to feature foods grown by local individuals, food businesses, and farm families who are sharing some of their culture and many of their signature food creations with all the people who attend.

The exhibition will be taking place right up until June 1, 2014, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm every day at the Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center located at 426 N Jackson Street in Janesville, Wisconsin. To learn more, please visit the Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center website or call 608-756-4509. Admission prices vary, but can be found on the website or by calling.
