Agritourism Workshop Postponed due to Weather

Northeast Iowa – With the cold, wet weather this spring has brought with it, work in the fields has been delayed for many Iowa farmers. To allow farmers to focus their efforts, Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area (SSNHA) has decided to postpone its workshop on agritourism, “Growing Your Story: How to Create Authentic Farm Experiences.” The workshop, which was to be held Friday, May 30, 2008 will be rescheduled at a later date.

“With this spring’s unpredictable weather, we want to allow our farmers to focus their attention on their time in the fields,” commented Don Short, SSNHA President. “We feel this is a valuable workshop and look forward to offering it again in the near future.”

Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area is one of 37 federally designated heritage areas in the nation and is an Affiliated Area of the National Park Service. The Heritage Area covers 37 counties in the northeast quadrant of Iowa. Interstate 80 borders it on the south and Interstate 35 borders it on the west. Through a network of sites, programs and events, SSNHA interprets farm life, agribusiness and rural communities – past and present.
