Savoring Heriatge: Hearth Cooking with Amyrose Foll

Saturday, November 4, 2023 (1:00 PM - 3:00 PM) (EDT)


Join Amyrose Foll at the Louisa County Historical Society for an immersive hearth-cooking experience! The host of Virginia Home Grown will share her expertise on native corn varieties and their profound importance in indigenous communities. She'll also demonstrate the art of making corn dumplings (known as skamonabôn) using locally sourced ingredients, all within the charming and historic Michie House. Space is limited – reserve your spot today!
Amyrose is the founder of The Virginia Free Farm, which provides free nutrient-dense food assistance to those in need. The organization also supplies free plants and seeds to community gardens, schools, and community-based organizations while educating young people about Indigenous agriculture & lifeways.
Amyrose's strong background in healthcare and her native heritage (Penobscot/Abenaki) prompted her to begin advocating for food sovereignty and the preservation of Indigenous food culture. Amyrose is a U.S. Army veteran, former firefighter-paramedic, and nurse. She also holds Master's degrees in Health Information Management and Digital Marketing, as well as certificates in Viticulture, Fruit Tree Production, Poultry Production, and Woodlot Management from Cornell University.
