Throughout our internship, we have had the opportunity to work with a variety of people from Iowa State University and ISU Extension and Outreach. This past week, we met with Josh Sievers. Josh Sievers works with the Northwest Iowa Research Farm, a partnership between Iowa State University and Northwest Iowa Experimental Association. He, and the research farm, are also involved at the Lyon County demonstration garden. The demonstration garden is located at the Lyon County fair grounds in Rock Rapids, IA.
The festival will run from 1PM to 5 PM on Sunday, September 25th with food, music, activities involving some of our local producers, and the opportunity to get to know more about the herbs grown in our area, how to grow them, and how to preserve them yourself! Hope to see you there!
