Fermentation Fest’s Farm/Art DTour wins grant


Wormfarm Institute won a $35,000 Art Works grant to support the Farm/Art DTour. The tour, which is held every other year, is part of Fermentation Fest. It was last held in 2018 and will return during this year’s festival. The grant was presented by the National Endowment for the Arts. Farming, conservation and art are featured during the tour, which winds its way through Sauk County. The Reedsburg-based Wormfarm Institute organizes both the tour and Fermentation Fest. During the first round of distribution, the National Endowment for the Arts has approved 1,187 grants worth $27.3 million. Funding supports projects that engage the public with the arts, arts education, arts displays, and the creation of new unique opportunities. In a statement, Wormfarm Institute Executive Director Donna Neuwirth said, “We are deeply honored to receive support from the NEA at a moment when rural America, and Wisconsin in particular, finds itself at the center of national attention. This multifaceted project, now in its eighth year, brings rural and urban people together to celebrate the land upon which we all depend. Even as this free nine day event lowers barriers to engagement, it upholds the highest standards of artistic excellence and artistic merit that is necessary for NEA support.” For more information on the 2020 DTour visit www.fermentationfest.com.

Community members buy custom pottery at 6:8’s SOUPer Bowl


On Sunday, January 26, 2020 The SOUPer Bowl was held at 6:8. Community members purchased one of kind bowls made by the Sauk Prairie Pottery Students and Teachers. The bowls were put to use by tasting 4 different homemade soups made by local chefs and community members. Participants learned about the Circles of Sauk Prairie initiative: to reduce poverty in Sauk Prairie by 10% in 10 years. The SOUPer Bowl was organized by NHS member and Secretary Claudia Miller, a senior at Sauk Prairie High School. Claudia’s idea for her NHS service project raised funds to cover the cost for one family to participate in the program. The money raised was matched by a generous business donation. Students, the teachers, the cooks, and the 6:8 Organization are commended for their assistance in making this event a success. Pictured is Claudia Miller with the donated bowls.
