Prairie Smoke in bloom at Prairie Horizons Farm

Saturday, June 6th
5 pm until ‘closing’
At Prairie Horizons Farm
31008 State Highway 29
Benson, MN
Your hosts will be Mary Jo and Luverne Forbord.

Feasting will begin with a POTLUCK at 5:30 sharp.  Please bring a dish to share. We have water, coffee, and apple juice on tap, plus tables, chairs, dishes, and recycling for this zero waste event.

When we can eat no more, we will board a hay rack or two for a farm tour, during which time we will hear from Dr. Margaret Kuchenruether and Dr. Sharon Weyers, two amazing doctors who have conducted research at Prairie Horizons Farm since 2008.

Margaret is en ecologist studying the habitat provided for insects on Prairie Horizons Farm.

Sharon's research focus is on sustainable and organic agriculture, soil conservation, nutrient cycling, water quality, and microbial and soil invertebrate ecology.

After mixing it up with food and research, it’s time to kick back for a musical jam and bonfire, with thirsts quenched by whatever beverages you have stocked in your cooler in anticipation of this joyous gathering.
