River ice-cutting party set for Feb. 16 in Canton
Monday, February 11, 2013 - 1:58 pm



CANTON – A river ice-cutting party is set for Saturday, Feb. 16 from 9 a.m. on, sponsored by Local Living Venture and free and open to the public.

Interested people can spend time on the completely off-the-grid, non-electric homestead of the Douglass family, using horses and human power as well as a water-pumping windmill.

And people can learn more about the time-honored skill of hand-cutting ice from a pond for a root cellar or icebox storage during warmer weather.

Everyone is welcome to bring a bag lunch, though homemade soup will be provided.

This event is near Canton. An RSVP is necessary for the exact address.

To register email [email protected] or call 347-4223 and note attendee names, home and cell numbers and email contact information.

Plans for more events in the spring line-up of rural skills workshops from the Local Living Venture can be seen at www.SustainableLivingProject.net.
