A family-friendly GROW community day focused on fungus! Sabrina Aspenson of UW-L will lead us on a trek through the woods and pastures to look for a number of different species of fungi, both edible and non-edible.

— Drawing and Nature Journaling on the Farm —

Join Laurie Stiers of HerbsAllAround for a class focused on drawing plants and nature journaling. Laurie has a wealth of information about botany and common uses of plants. Our hope is that you will love the process and start a nature journal that you will return to throughout the seasons!

Volunteer Appreciation Day

This past Tuesday evening, we celebrated our volunteers with a Volunteer Appreciation Garden Party! We want to thank you for all the efforts and time. Our organization could not be here without you.

The evening included snacks, door prizes, and great conversation. We hope that all of our volunteers always feel as though their work is appreciated!
