SILT hosts UI Students
March 19 @ 1:00 pm - 6:30 pm
The Sustainable Iowa Land Trust will be hosting students of Prof. Mellon’s alternative spring break to discuss SILT’s part in a local food system. Without local farms there can be no local food!
Students will start out at Draco Hill in Cedar County as an example of a “hobby farm” and then go to SILT’s Phoenix Farm in Morse to see the potential for farm-scale fruit, nut, vegetable and meat production, finishing their day at Rapid Creek Cidery to hear from a chef about purchasing and cooking with local food.
