Farm/Art DTour

Wormfarm Institute

Funding Received: 2011
Sauk County, WI
$100,000
Funding Period: 1 year and 5 months

Artists and the food and farming community will converge at the annual Fermentation Fest - a Live Culture Convergence in Sauk County, Wisconsin.  This unique crossover collaboration by the Wormfarm Institute, also supported by the county economic development organization and state tourism office, will feature the Farm/Art DTour, a 50 mile self guided drive through scenic working farmland punctuated by farm-based ephemeral art installations, artist-made Roadside Culture Stands, pasture performances, tastings, demonstrations, and more. The project demonstrates an “economic gardening” approach to development that takes full advantage of local assets.
