“How can agriculture help to create better communities, and how can communities help to create better agriculture?”
You are invited to take part in a thought-provoking conversation
Wednesday, June 10, 1:30-4:30 p.m.
Dakota Event Center, 720 Lamont St. S., Aberdeen, S.D.
(west of Target)
The next session of the Prairie Idea Exchange (P.I.E.) will explore the connection between agriculture and rural communities: “How can agriculture help to build better communities, and how can communities help to build better agriculture?”
The conversation will be used to build stories for the next issue of Dakotafire magazine, which will go to an expanded circulation of about 50,000 in northeastern South Dakota.
All those interested in joining in a conversation on that topic are invited to attend. People involved in agriculture are especially encouraged to attend.
Actual pie will be served.
Participants are encouraged to let organizers know they are coming to ensure enough space is allotted and enough pie is ordered. Please send an e-mail to Paula Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, June 5. The registration deadline has passed, but we still have room for 10 more participants.
Prairie Idea Exchange is “a way to share fruitful, community-building ideas across northeastern South Dakota and beyond through conversations among economic development professionals, community journalists and the region’s residents in person, in print and online.” The project is sponsored by a Bush Foundation Community Innovation Grant, Grow South Dakota and Dakota Resources. Dakotafire Media is implementing the project. Read more about the project here or see stories from the latest issue of Dakotafire, which were sparked from the last Prairie Idea Exchange session, here.
If you cannot attend, but know someone who could or should, please pass along the word!
