Field Days are a great opportunity for small farmers, homesteaders, and home gardeners to network and learn from their fellow food growers. During the field day, hosts will lead the group on a short farm tour, focusing in on one topic or element of production that has been a success or challenge that they can share with the group. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and share experiences during the event.
Field days are open to the public and free for members of the Southern Illinois Farming Alliance and Food Works. A $10 donation is suggested for non-members. Registration is encouraged but not required. RSVP at www.fwsoil.org/field-days or by calling (618) 370-3287
Field Days are hosted by the Southern Illinois Farming Alliance, a project of Food Works (www.fwsoil.org), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes long-term farming networks that create healthy soils, healthy food, and healthy communities in the 23 counties that make up Southern
Illinois. This event is created in partnership with the IDEA Farm Network (www.regenerateillinois.org/ifn) a learning community of farmers, scientists, advocates, food entrepreneurs and consumers to advance regenerative agriculture.
