Fermentation Fest 2021 took place at Witwen Park with a two-day celebration of live culture in all its forms. For this special Grassland Edition, Wormfarm Institute partnered with researchers at the Grassland 2.0 project (University of Wisconsin–Madison) to showcase the rich cultural history of integrating dance, music and art into farming traditions, and the power of regenerative, grassland-based agriculture to support healthy communities, ecosystems and people.
