I will be speaking Saturday morning, 11 am. Title of presentation – “The Versatility of Wool and the Future of the Sheep Industry in Arizona”. Topics include Wools: Uses and Benefits, Make It With Wool Contest, Two Sheep Family: Four Generations, and Rovey Sheep Dairy. I will have samples of the Rovey cheese. There is lots happening at the Festival: artisan vendors, demos, classes and yes, animals: sheep, alpacas, yak, camel, llama. Oh, yes, there will be food! And that is besides the cheeses!
Festival runs from 9-4 both days at the Pioneer Museum, 2340 N. Ft. Valley Rd., Flagstaff.
It came to my attention a few years ago that the sheep industry in Arizona was disappearing. I love history, traveling to new places and research. These have been combined in researching this history. I am an independent researcher and speaker and also part of AZ Speaks with the Arizona Humanities. I hold a BA in Anthropology, a MA and Ph.D. in geography. My masters was in land use geography and the Ph.D. was more in historical geography. I love to travel and have visited all seven continents and more than 50 countries. I am a member of the Women Writing the West.
