Our upcoming program at our annual meeting on September 29, 2013 features some of the strangest history in Johnson County, to some people. It has been written about since the happening in state reports and in our Bulletin. But as yet, as far as we know, no one has tried to replicate the event.
Paul Landkamer, entomophagist, will guide us through the program. We still need cooks who want to show off their wild edibles and participants. This feast is inspired by the 1875 grasshopper feast which actually happened here in Warrensburg. It's also the plague featured in Laura Ingalls-Wilder's "On the Banks of Plum Creek". Since we couldn't schedule another plague, we opened the feast up to any wild edibles --of course, concentrating on the insects. Please contact us if you are interested.
