RAS-03 San Antonio Food Bank's Urban Farm Fieldtrip

Field Trip to the San Antonio Food Bank's Urban Farm at Mission San Juan


Please join us for an amazing local experience on Friday afternoon from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.


Sign up at the Registration Desk by 1:00 p.m. to guarantee a spot on this local trip.

 

 

The San Antonio Food Bank’s farm at Mission San Juan is actually on a National Park site. All of the San Antonio Missions, besides the Alamo, are run by the National Park System, and ours is an unusual land use agreement where we’re able to cultivate on some of its land. When the Spanish colonists arrived and established the missions almost 300 years ago, they started farming that land using acequias, which were diversion ditches inspired by Roman and Moorish irrigation techniques. We continue the same tradition by farming this land, where a portion is irrigated using the historic methods of the Spanish and the indigenous. We also focus on cultivating more drought tolerant crops that can withstand rising temperatures. What food we grow ends up going to the community in South Texas that needs it through our Food Bank distribution programs.

The Kinkaider's Song:  A Homesteader Ballad from the Nebraska Sandhills

 

   - Tom Isern, North Dakota State University

 

The family of prairie folksong tracing lineage to the gospel hymn, “Beulah Land,” is prolific. “Beulah Land” is about a place, the blissful afterlife. Prairie singers borrowed its melody and motifs to localize them to their own places on the plains, sometimes as joyful paeans to a bountiful country, other times as sardonic commentaries on a hard land. “The Kinkaider’s Song” is exceptional in that it is traceable to a particular time and place: the Kinkaider picnic of 16 August 1911, a gathering of homesteaders at the Will Davis grove, a seven-year-old tree claim near Anselmo, in northern Custer County, Nebraska. Fourteen-year-old Matilda Matthews was there and wrote for a regional newspaper, the Atkinson Graphic, “We composed a song, ‘The Kinkaider’s Song,’ and sang it.” The song resounding through the Davis grove in 1911 arose from the historical circumstances of the Kinkaid Act of 1904, which allowed homesteads of a full section, 640 acres, rather than a quarter-section, 160 acres. Its sponsor and heroic proponent, Congressman Moses P. Kinkaid, was present when the Kinkaiders sang their anthem in his honor. From there the song passed into oral tradition and the mysterious canon of Great Plains balladry. Recently discovered, the original text and circumstances of “The Kinkaider’s Song” illustrate the capacity of digitized source materials to move ballads previously anonymous into the realm of known authorship and context--an important development in the interpretation of Great Plains folksong.
