Summer Field Days!
Whether you are a new farmer, a farmer with a couple of years under your belt, or an experienced
grower, we’ll have a field day for you this summer! The Education committee is currently organizing our summer field days. Check back on this site at the end of May for the full line-up.
Harvest Fest 2015!
We could keep millions of dollars circulating in our region if we ate and sold more local food. The Lake Superior Sustainable Farming Association’s Harvest Festival is the premier venue for learning about and boosting sustainable agriculture and food systems. LSSFA is hosting the Festival for its 22nd year! Harvest Fest will take place at Bayfront Festival Park on Saturday, September 12th from 10am – 4pm. Held rain or shine, it is a free, family-oriented event that brings over 8,000 producers and consumers together to celebrate healthy communities through sustainably produced delicious food.
Harvest Festival features local farmers, artisans, live music, active organizations and businesses devoted to sustainability, and demonstrations; we want YOU to join us this year. As we gear up for the 2015 Harvest Festival we are searching for vendors who will offer food fresh from the farm, locally made arts and crafts, local ingredients in delicious prepared food and beverages, and nonprofit and private businesses who promote ecological and social sustainability along with a vibrant local economy.
Check out our links below if you would like to participate in the farmer’s market, be a food vendor, be a craft vendor, table as a non-profit, or provide a demonstration.
