The midwest's largest organic food and sustainability festival, The Kickapoo Country Fair, is this weekend in LaFarge, Wisconsin, and I’ll be there talking with folks, making seedballs and sharing goodies from HOMEGROWN.org and Farm Aid. Those goodies include the new HOMEGROWN How-to Cards that teach seed saving, build-your-own self-watering planters, and making pesto from all that kale we’re finding in our CSA shares and gardens. Do you have events going on this summer? Please feel free to download and print the HOMEGROWN How-to Cards to distribute to people – they were made for sharing!
Highlights from this year’s Kickapoo programming include a talk with animal welfare and autism activist Dr. Temple Grandin, music from Miles Nielsen and Michael Perry and The Long Beds, and a whole slew of workshops, farm tours and cooking demonstrations. Set on the grounds of Organic Valley Headquarters in the lovely Kickapoo Valley, the Fair has been called “The Sturgis of organic,” so how can you go wrong? Ha!
I hope to meet some of you Wisconsinites there– come by and say hi.
It’s going to be an awesome weekend!
