Focus Weekend – Farmers Nooning

August 7 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Duration: 3 hr
Public Anyone on or off Facebook
Focus weekend – Farmers Nooning, 11a – 2p:
Taking a break, or “nooning,” in the heat of the day would help both enslaved and free 19th century farmers renew their energy on a long day in the blazing Texas sun! A little rest, food, water, and shade goes a long way. Pack a lunch and join us under the cottonwood trees by the crop fields as we take a break from our labors and recover so that we can finish out the day strong! Contact Ben Baumgartner at ben.baumgartner@thc.texas.gov or 936-878-2214 x248 for more information.
