Wormfarm Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a sustainable future for agriculture and the arts by fostering vital links between people and the land. Based in Wisconsin, the organization has been working for more than 20 years to create new economic opportunities in the region and support a flourishing cultural ecology by bringing rural and urban communities together around farming, land conservation, and the arts. Wormfarm's initiatives include an artist residency program, the management of Roadside Culture Stands across the state, and more. As part of the annual Fermentation Fest, the organization launched the biennial Farm/Art DTour in 2011 as a way to make the connections between the land and art more legible and to stimulate the local economy. Farm/Art DTour is a free, self-guided drive through Wisconsin’s working farmland that features large-scale public artworks, local food markets, roadside poetry, and educational Field Notes. Since 2011, the event’s attendance has grown from 3,000 to over 22,000 people, helping to unlock opportunities for investment in local cultural assets and resources that were previously undervalued.
