We invite you to join us at our Winter Farmers’ Markets & Meals starting this November. Our markets are an opportunity to share a meal made from locally produced ingredients with others in your community, purchase products directly from local farmers and producers, learn about sustainable farming practices and build connections with our vendors. We are sponsoring a total of 13 Markets this year in both the Madison and Milwaukee areas. Check out our schedules and join us!

Our Harvest Celebration on November 9 at Southwest Technical College in Fennimore succeeded in laying the groundwork for future projects that will benefit rural communities in Southwestern Wisconsin. We met to nurture the seeds planted at the Listening/Networking Sessions held earlier this year. We shared conversation while celebrating the season’s end with a locally-sourced meal prepared by Rex Smith of Southwest Tech.
Our conversation focused on the top priorities stated in our report, “Looking into the Future of Southwestern Wisconsin”:
We encouraged participants to apply for small grants of $1200 to $1500 to support new initiatives that would address these priorities. Those who were unable to attend the Harvest Celebration may apply by completing this form and submitting it to Roger Williams at email@example.com no later than December 31, 2018.
