    Join us for a fall walk through the fields and kettles on the Institute’s new organic transition farm

    Saturday, November 4, 2017, 10:30 am – Noon

    A SPECIAL FALL FIELD DAY PROMOTING SUSTAINABILITY AND GOOD STEWARDSHIP OF LAND

    Jim Stute, Research Director at Michael Fields Agricultural Institute, will guide the tour of the new research fields, conservation buffers, waterways, and pollinator habitat. This farm has been designed to decrease nutrient and soil run-off to as close to zero as possible as part of our goal to keep the Mukwonago River Watershed pristine.

    The United Nations considers soil degradation one of the central threats to human health in the coming decades. Jim is excited to share with you how the Institute is working on this issue!

    A Tallgrass Restoration specialist will talk about conservation and native practices being done on this farm and what you can do at home.

    Tour begins and ends at the Institute. Farm is within 10 minutes, a bus with panoramic windows will shuttle all to and from the farm, and be a comfortable place to view the farm in case of inclement weather.

    Refreshments will be available 10:30-11 am.

    SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2017 ~ 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.

    Please join us for the “SACRED AUTUMN: A Passion for Paper” art reception by Wisconsin Artist Pam Ring.   Enjoy refreshments served and music “Autumn” by Vivaldi at the Fall art reception on Sunday afternoon, November 19th from 3:00-5:00 p.m. and admission is FREE.

    The beautiful work of an optimistic artist who turned an art form begun in post-war outrage to one that brings peace-full delight to viewers.  Ring’s fabulous collage works will be on display for the Autumn season at Michael Fields Agricultural Institute, the “Big Brown Barn” located at W2493 County Road ES, East Troy WI 53120.  The Good Earth Church of the Divine hosts the quarterly seasoned art exhibits as part of the Good Earth’s mission to recognize the healing effects of the arts upon the human spirit, even as art draws attention to Earth care as a moral obligation and sacred calling.

    The public will be able to view the art exhibit Monday through Friday, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and by appointment during the weekends through December 13th.  For more information or to schedule a weekend viewing, call 262-684-5193.
