A group of UWGB students and faculty are planning to attend this year’s Prairie Festival at the Land Institute in Salina, KS Sept. 24-Sept. 28. We will be driving UWGB vans and camping.

The tentative plan is:
• Leave GB morning on Thursday, Sept 24, camp overnight in Western Iowa
• Get to Salina afternoon on Friday, Sept 25, (to get good tent sites)
• Leave Salina noon on Sunday, Sept 27
• Camp / motel somewhere Sunday night
• GB midafternoon Monday, Sept 28

The Land Institute is a cutting edge, science-based organization that promotes an alternative to current destructive agricultural practices. Their work is dedicated to advancing perennial grain crops and polyculture farming solutions.

Are you a UWGB student and interested in attending? Email dornbusm@uwgb.edu and use “Prairie Festival” as the subject header and we will add you to the list.

Early registration ($10) ends on Sept. 11, 2015
