9/9 Green Visions: UMD's Sustainable Agriculture Project

Sep 9, 2015

  We talk with UMD Professor Randy Hanson about UMD's Sustainable Agriculture Project (SAP), a fifteen-acre "land lab" that utilizes sustainable farming practices.  SAP was formed in 2009 to "institute education, research, and regional engagement around community food and agriculture systems in the western Lake Superior bioregion." 

Next Sunday, September 20th, the SAP will hold its second annual UMD Food and Farm Festival, including a regional farmer's market, live local music, SAP "farm fresh foods" prepared by UMD's Executive Chef Tom Linderholm, and the Claude 5k Run/Walk through the fields and forests surrounding the Sustainable Agriculture Project Farm on Riley Road.
