ISU Extension is piloting Homegrown Lifestyle for those who are eager to reconnect to the land and understand more fully where their food comes from. The 12-week course begins in April in Dallas, Johnson and Woodbury counties.

Extension educators will make weekly presentations via webinar and local extension staff members will conduct related hands-on experiences during each session. “This will be a whirlwind tour of all the topics smallholders need to consider when trying to build a sustainable personal farmscape,” said Andy Larson, ISU Extension small farm sustainability specialist and Homegrown Lifestyle co-leader.
