Dakota Rural Action held its first farm tour for South Dakota Farm Beginnings students at the Garden Goddess Greenhouse in Milan, MN. This small greenhouse and urban farm, feeds 18 families through the winter on baby greens and fall storage crops.
Farm Beginnings is a program originated by the Land Stewardship Project in Minnesota. Dakota Rural Action licensed the program in 2009 with help from an NCR-SARE Research and Education grant and will graduate the first class of beginning farmers this summer.
