Event Description

May 4 marks the kick-off of two month-long outdoor art exhibits at Heritage Farm:

  • Grassfed,” by artist Valerie Miller of Steel Cow studio in Waukon, Iowa, features larger than life outdoor portraits of the Ancient White Park Cattle living at Heritage Farm.
  • Talking Trees,” a sound installation by Brooke Joyce from Luther College in Decorah, mixes the sounds of nature with composed music.

On May 4th only, Seed Savers Exchange will be offering unique vegetable transplants from the preservation seed bank for sale to the public. Varieties include staff favorites like the deep maroon amaranth ‘Kerala Red,’ a nearly black lettuce ‘Revolution-Evolution,’ a classic mustard known as ‘Myers’ Family Heirloom,’ and the relentlessly fruitful tomato ‘Tiny Tim Yellow.’ Quantities are limited.
