The mission of Ziibimijwang Farm, owned by the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians, is to enhance Little Traverse Bay Band food sovereignty. Ziibimijwang does this by by providing a reliable food source for the community independent of the larger food system, encouraging a healthy lifestyle for the people and enhancing people’s knowledge and ability to do farming and gardening and subsistence activities for themselves.
Ziibimijwang Farm is proud to grow high quality, nutritionally dense, seasonal vegetables using sustainable farming practices that will follow organic standards that care for the soil, groundwater, and adjacent natural areas. They use no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides on the farm. Join us for a conversation about this young farm and where it’s headed.
ABOUT TWILIGHT TOURS
Get a snapshot of a farm other than your own. This is an opportunity for area small farmers and wanna-be-farmers to learn from one another’s practices through a series of tours and farmer-led workshops. This year’s season will focus on “tools in action” — with a loose definition of the word tools. Animals as tools, water as a tool, hands as tools; come out and learn about innovations on the farms in your community.
Twilight Tours begin at dusk, around 6pm. Pre-registration requested, but not required. You can find all the Twilight Tours on the Crosshatch Events page. For more information, or to RSVP call (231) 622-5252 or email Jen Harris.
