Images from the Reedsburg Fermentation Fest
Last weekend saw the conclusion of the two-week Reedsburg Fermentation Fest, an annual event led by the Wormfarm Institute in collaboration with many individuals and organizations from Sauk County, Wisconsin and beyond. The event also corresponds with the Farm Art DTour, which features a path through the county punctuated by roadside installation art, such as Brenda Leigh Baker’s Crib seen above. Folks can also follow the Fermentation Fest link to also learn about the varied forms of events that illuminate the “live culture convergence,” everything from beekeeping and homebrewing to readings by food activist Gary Nabhan and agrarian artist Nikiko Masumoto.
The Flickr feed for this year’s Fermentation Fest is extraordinary — a fine introduction to the kinds of visionary work that the Wormfarm Institute and their many community collaborators bring to Reedsburg and Sauk County each year.
