Organic Farm School
Since 2006, WEI has offered in the Twin Cities a unique ten-week educational summer program composed of lectures, related readings, hands-on workshops and field trips. The series focuses on a wide variety of topics framing sustainable organic agriculture, food justice and the new food revolution, relevant to a larger understanding of sustainable agriculture, food justice and local and global food and farming politics. The lecture series has been variously located, starting in 2006 in the basement of Amazon Bookstore in Minneapolis, moving subsequent years to Open Book, Phillips Cultural Community Center, and most recently to Birchwood Café in 2016.. The programming for Organic Farm School exemplifies WEI’s mission to promote environmental, food and farming justice, across rural and urban and international communities.
For 2017, we will not be offering this series. Plans and grant funding for the summer of 2018 are underway.
