About the Project

The 1980 Folklife Festival included a program about Community Activities and Food Preservation presented by participants from rural Georgia. Throughout rural America, events known as Homecomings served as a way to pull the community together, and food played a central role in such events. Participants demonstrated and educated visitors on such food preservation techniques as canning, pickling, meat smoking, wine making, and "found food" preparation, among other topics. Help transcribe these Festival recordings to learn more about how food can create community and preserve local tradition. Please view the instructions for transcribing audio collections before beginning. If you can identify the speakers, please do so using the format {SPEAKER NAME= "____" } if you cannot identify the speakers, please simply indicate when a different individual is speaking by inserting the "Speaker 1," "Speaker 2," etc. tags.
