Hi there. I've decided to do a "local life" post on a very loose schedule of 2-3 times per month. I'm not sure how it all relates to the Art Wall theme but I said from the beginning that the blog was for anything that interested me and I enjoy writing about Madison, so I hope it seems to fit with the rest of the blog.
This particular "local life" post is a good transitional piece because it's about Outstanding in the Field, a traveling tour bus that is coming to Madison next month, but will also continue across the states, perhaps coming to a farm near you.
Locally, it will take place at Troy Gardens, which is 31 acres of state-owned land within Madison proper dedicated to preserving wild prairie-lands, offering affordable sustainable housing, and organic gardening and teaching. It is one of the only places of its kind in the country.
The meal will be 5 courses prepared by the Underground Food Collective. It will be my first experience with their fare but I've heard wonderful things about them from Sarah, so I know it will be a feast.
