Description

HARVEST TIME AT FORT MOSE HISTORIC STATE PARK
--Celebrate the multicultural food traditions of St. Augustine at the first harvest of Fort Mose--

Fort Mose was founded in March 1738. The new homesteaders at the Fort Mose settlement were busy during the summer and early fall of 1738 building their homes and the fort, planting their first crops and tending their livestock. Governor Montiano provided food rations from the government's stores until they could harvest their first crops. Harvest Time at Fort Mose celebrates their first harvest. Participants will learn about the Spanish, African, and Native American food traditions and culture from guest speakers and demonstrators. Stories and crafts for children. Demonstrations by the Fort Mose militia. The event is outdoors and free to the public.
