The Sustainable Farming Association’s Southeast Chapter is sponsoring an informational meeting, “Alternative Energies,” from 9:30 a.m. to noon Tues., Sept. 30.
The meeting will take place at Mike Lee’s farm, 6304 Highway 42 NE, Elgin, which is 2.8 miles south of town. Mike has been using solar energy to provide his farm’s energy and will explain his system and experiences. Lee also has a large outdoor furnace that should be of interest.
At or around 10:30 or 11 a.m., the group will caravan to the Jon Hassler Theater, 412 W Broadway, Plainview, for refreshments. There will be discussion on geothermal, solar and wood-burning energies, with company representatives.
There will be no charge for this event, but freewill donations will be accepted. Bring a friend. For more information, contact Edgar Hansgen at 507.932.4219 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
