Urban Farm Tour ⋅ Saturday, July 26, 10:00am – 2:00pm
From Lakeside to Spirit Mountain, enjoy the day visiting Duluth area urban gardens and farms! Held in conjunction with the Duluth Community Garden Program, this event is a great opportunity for all ages to explore food being raised in our city by your own neighbors. Meet your local farmers and learn about their innovative farming techniques in an urban setting. Choose to visit one or all of our participating farms–see the map below!
Healthy Duluth Ideas Festival ⋅ June 24th, 5:30 – 7:15 ⋅ Zeitgeist Arts Building
The Zeppa Foundation, in partnership with the Convergence Innovation Fund, is inviting up to four members of our community to give a public presentation highlighting some of the best ideas to make Duluth a healthier place for us all. We hope to bring both attention and support to those ideas. We’ll also offer our support by awarding a cash prize to at least one of the ideas presented during the festival.
Farm Dreams is a four-hour workshop offered by the Land Stewardship Project designed to help people clarify what motivates them to farm, get their vision on paper, inventory their strengths and training needs and get perspective from an experienced farmer.
