In 2015, the Sustainable Farming Association marks its 25th anniversary.
As SFA begins a yearlong series of special events and publications revolving around our Silver Anniversary, we are seeking submissions for a special edition of the yearly CornerPost magazine and a permanent web-based public archive – SFA-related memories, stories, photos, videos, documents. This can be anything you have to share that can help tell SFA’s story, whether it happened 25 years or 25 days ago. A selection of these historical nuggets will be published in the upcoming CornerPost edition as well as archived on our homepage.
Even if you want to just send two sentences about what SFA means to you, that would be terrific. No submission is too large or too small, as we are hoping to collect as diverse a range of information as possible.
Photos are an especially poignant way to tell SFA’s history, and we encourage you to send as many as possible. They can be whimsical, serious, educational, adorable, or just plain goofy (left). Information about those pictured along with the photo would be extra helpful.
Additionally, we’re having a video contest: Make a short video (no longer than two minutes) about SFA, sustainability and what it means to you. The videos will be posted on our website, and the best video (as chosen by a panel of distinguished SFA staff) will receive a semi-fabulous prize package of SFA swag as well as free admission to the SFA Annual Conference. Then, at the conference, we’ll play the winning video during the opening plenary session. Deadline for video submissions is Jan. 15, 2015.
Email your materials to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll start compiling. Or, mail to SFA, Box 192, Princeton, MN 55371.
Deadline to make it into the CornerPost is Oct. 31, and we can’t return things you mail without prior approval. After that we welcome submissions, but they will only be reproduced on the website.
Thank you for helping us celebrate 25 years of sustainable agriculture in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest!
