SHELBURNE-Vermont's landscape reflects a history of complex relationships between people and the land. On Wednesday, Oct. 14, a program, "The Landscape of Vermont: Cultivating Art, Food, and Sustainability", will explore those relationships through the eyes of a panel of farmers and artists. Jeff Roberts, author of "Atlas of American Artisan Cheese", will moderate the panel which follows a dinner featuring an array of locally-produced foods.
The program, at the historic coach barn on the shore of Lake Champlain, begins with an opportunity to visit the Art Exhibition at 5 p.m., includes a buffet dinner at 6 and the panel at 7 p.m.
Roberts, who has been described as a walking encyclopedia of American cheeses, says, "As citizens, can we identify and strengthen the connections between farming and forestry, agriculture and food, and artistic expressions for a more sustainable landscape and better regional, national and global food systems?"
The fee for the art exhibition, dinner and panel is $35 per person. Register by calling 985-8686.
