More than 350 dancers and musicians from across the globe will arrive in Waynesville on July 19 to participate in the 27th annual Folkmoot International Festival, and a project is under way to provide as much fresh food as possible for the dancers.
These dancers and musicians work up quite an appetite performing across Western North Carolina. Folkmoot staff and volunteers provide four full meals each day during the two-week festival. Feeding the dancers and musicians costs a lot of money, and Folkmoot has traditionally relied volunteer help and community contributions.
This year Folkmoot is in need of baked goods, fruits, vegetables, herbs and even flowers for the dining room tables. Folkmoot is searching for gardeners who would like to help “feed the world” through a donation of produce, herbs or fruit. If you are a gardener blessed with an abundant harvest and would like to make a contribution from your garden or other source, Folkmoot can provide you with a receipt for a charitable donation. Folkmoot is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization.
To find out how you can help “feed the world,” or to make a donation, please call Sybil Mann, Folkmoot Food Committee Chairperson, at 828.508.4336.
