STOGROW Farm Tour this Saturday

I'm planning to stop by the STOGROW farm tour this Saturday. STOGROW is St. Olaf College's student-run garden research and organic works farm. The farm uses organic and sustainable methods to produce fresh produce that it sells to the Bon Appetit kitchens on campus. Bon Appetit then incorporates the food into daily meals for St. Olaf students and for the various organizations that visit St. Olaf during the summer.

They're hosting a summer festival Saturday, July 21, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will include tours of the natural lands, beekeeping demonstrations, music, face painting, sheep shearing, and food . The festival is free and open to the public. More info is available here.

The farm is located just west of the St. Olaf campus, at 8997 Eaves Ave. (just off Highway 19 on the "hospital" road), directly behind the Cannon River Watershed Project.
