Five Weeks of Leeks: Week 1, The What, Where and How of Wild Leeks

It’s Spring in Kane (snow and all!) and that means leek season is here! There is a leek culture here like nowhere else and we want to celebrate it. So, for the next five weeks we will be highlighting the wild leek! (For those not familiar with leeks, they are also called “ramps” in other parts of the nation.)


For week 1 we wanted to get the what, where and how of the wild leek, so we covered the basics with former 4th grade teacher Bob James: What is a leek? Why do they grow here? How have they been used over time?

Watch the video below to have these questions and more  answered by Mr. James!
