Southern Draft Animal Days, Sept. 17-18


The second annual SDAD will be held at the Blue Ridge Institute at Ferrum College in Ferrum, Virginia on September 17-18. Jason Rutledge, one of my Radical Roots interviewees and director of Healing Harvest Forrest Foundation, is the mastermind behind this one-of-a-kind event. There will be draft logging field demonstrations, round pen seminars, horse pulling contests, a parade of breeds, and hands on learning opportunities of all kinds. Wendell Berry will be speaking at the Ferrum auditorium on Saturday evening. This is a weekend you don't want to miss.
