2015 IN FOOD + COMMUNITY
Season Five: Year In Review
We were floored by the response and turnout of the 3rd annual Basilica Farm & Flea, hosted in collaboration with the glamorous and hardworking women of Hudson River Exchange, which brought 12,000 visitors to Hudson. The wild and mythical ramp was again hailed, deliciously interpreted, and tasted at this year’s annual Ramp Fest held in collaboration with Swoon KitchenBar. Our 4th annual (FREAK) FLAG DAY presented our first-ever community flag-making workshops, so people could create flags to represent their individual identity, which may – or may not – be reflected in the Stars and Stripes. The Oral History Summer School honored six Hudson residents in an audio procession of cars departing from Basilica Hudson in Automotive Archive: A Roving Memorial. In the realm of community action, we were pleased to host and participate in the Buy Local Chamber of Commerce Expo and The Regional Alliance for a Creative Economy’s panel discussion on Creative Placemaking. And as always, we are proud to host the ever-curious children and educators of Kite’s Nest. Also, this happened.
