Spring Day at the Farm Set for May 17th

The Newark FFA is participating in "Spring Day at the Farm" by bringing a display to share with all who come to the day at the farm. The day runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the Kendall County 4-H is joining with FFA to showcase what both groups learn and do. The FFA members will be filling the buildings with farm animals just like was many years ago. The Dickson-Murst partners will be feeding the participants.
Even if you are participating at a display with your family, you are invited to participate in a Kendall Arts Guild Workshop. This will be held at Dickson-Murst Farm, 2250 Dickson Road, Montgomery from 12:30-3:00 p.m. This will take place during "Spring Day at the Farm" on Sunday, May 17, 2009.
The Dickson-Murst Farm, is a living example of the way farms adapted over time to meet the changing needs of society. The Dickson-Murst Farm Partners, a volunteer group of individuals and representatives from local nonprofit organizations, were established to maintain the outbuildings, sponsor activities to encourage visitors to the farm, and educate local residents about farming life.
