Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota (SFA) was the July 12 MCFM Community Booth. They support the development and enhancement of sustainable farming systems through farmer-to-farmer networking, innovation, demonstration, and education.
One of the programs offered by SFA is Farm Skills 101, which consists of around 50 hours of on-farm education over three weekends. Contact Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like more information.
SFA also hosts the annual Minnesota Garlic Festival, which will take place August 9 in Hutchinson. According to the website, there are over 100 varieties of the country’s finest garlic grown here, all planted in October, harvested in July, and cured to perfection just in time for the festival.
