Horn of Plenty

You might be thinking about hopping on the local-food bandwagon, but how do you launch such a daunting project as winter approaches? By attending the Cornucopia of Local, an indoor/outdoor farmer’s market with live music, presentations, displays and more, hosted by the Boulder County Farmers’ Market, Boulder Independent Business Alliance, Transition Boulder County, Colorado Friendship and the Outlook Hotel.

An emphasis on a locally sustainable winter means there will be presentations on everything from beekeeping to canning, fermenting, freezing and drying food, plus extending your growing season, cooking with local food, organizing your pantry, winter soil building, tree grafting, backyard chickens and much more. Bring a non-perishable food item or an article of winter clothing for Colorado Friendship. The Cornucopia takes place today from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Outlook Hotel, 800 28th Street in Boulder; visit www.boulderfarmers.org for information.
Sat., Nov. 22, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., 2008
