Many Kansans want to understand how our food makes it from the farm to our tables. And we think farm tours are the best way to provide that information.
Join us for a tour of two Wichita-area farms where you’ll get an up-close look at how these family farmers raise your food. We’ll also visit a grain terminal to learn about what happens to crops after they leave the fields.
We will provide a barbecue lunch and transportation. All that we ask is that you come prepared to learn and talk about today’s food and farming. Attire is casual. Don’t forget comfortable shoes (tennis shoes or boots are recommended). We also encourage you to bring a camera.
CommonGround is a grassroots coalition of more than 140 volunteer farm women from across the U.S. Together, these volunteers raise a variety of produce, grains and livestock that feed our nation.To learn more about these women and the CommonGround program, please visit our website at http://www.FindOurCommonGround.com.
By Friday, July 18, 5 p.m.
We’ll respond promptly with details on meeting location and schedule.
