Johanna Martina Mann, one of the three original founders of Michael Fields Agricultural Institute, passed away on April 1st, 2014 while at the Mann’s winter home in Überlingen, Germany. The Michael Fields Agricultural Institute grew out of a dream Martina had to own land in America and to use that land to bring forth education on the importance of wholesome food based on good soil and sustainable agriculture. She and her husband Christopher co-founded Michael Fields Agricultural Institute and opened Nokomis Bakery.
