Step back in time and make pie the 1860 way! On Saturday, June 20, 2015, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park will offer a 3-hour baking workshop, where participants will have the chance to bake and enjoy a slice of fresh fruit pie baked in a beehive oven. Learn about the connections between the town’s early industrial history and modern issues such as climate change and a dependence on fossil fuels. Compare 19th century baking methods and discover how the historic Victorian system of food production can be applied today to help reduce an individual’s carbon footprint and mitigate climate change. A workshop fee of $25.00 for adult participants covers baking ingredients and instruction in woodstove oven management. This event is suitable for children 12 and up with an attending parent. Visit the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park website for information about registering for this workshop. Pre-registration closes on June 13, 2015. This event is sponsored by the David Larsen Memorial Fund intern, the Harpers Ferry Historical Association, and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park.
