No comprehensive survey or documentation of the food and farming heritage of central Virginia exists, and we are slowly losing the opportunity to gather home-grown knowledge about hundreds of plants native to our region from a fading generation. That’s where the Virginia Food Heritage Project comes in. We have created a map that grows everyday when people like YOU share what they know about food heritage in Virginia. We work to save stories by placing YOUR recipes, stories, breeds, seeds, places, festivals, organizations and more on our interactive map!
