Field Day May 2023

Food Forest, Planted and Foraged Perennial Herbs

Join us for an on-farm Field Day event about Food Forest, Planted and Foraged Perennial Herbs at La Colina Linda Farm in Cobden.

La Colina Linda Farms LCL is a MOSA Certified Organic farm owned and operated by Kathy Ward & Jerry Kinser. They specialize in planting and foraging perennial herbs for market and value-added products using vegan inputs and practices. They grow and forage a variety of fruit, vegetables, herbs, and root vegetables. Growing practices on the farm include permaculture, double-dug beds, soil blocking, and the use of high tunnels, cover crops, and tarps. 

La Colina Linda LLC will have herbal tea samples available during the event and will have some of their value-added products for sale by cash/check only. They also have year-round online ordering of bake-to-order gluten-free, vegan breads and vegetables on their website lcl-farm.com.

Noah Scalero, Illinois FarmLink Navigator for The Land Connection, will be available during the event to provide information on their land access services connecting landowners and farmers.

Event Notes:

Bring a chair and beverage. There will be a vegan-only potluck to follow. We encourage you to bring a dish to share at the potluck or your own packed meal. 

Restrooms are available. Dress appropriately for a farm setting and be prepared for uneven terrain throughout the farm grounds.
