Featured Events

Happel Family Farm, Gallatin Valley Land Trust and Open & Local host a Work Party and Picnic on Saturday, September 14. This is an opportunity for community members to literally lend a helping hand to our local food system. By pulling plastic sheeting from six acres of land, volunteers will prepare this rich soil to stay in local, organic agriculture. Morning, afternoon or full-day shifts available. If you aren’t able to assist but would like to provide food for the mid-day barbecue and picnic, let us know! To volunteer or to learn more, email openlocalmt@gmail.com.

The first-ever Montana Fresh Hop Festival (October 19, Bozeman) celebrates fresh hop beer, a truly seasonal brew because it’s made with hop cones right when they’re harvested. (The large majority of hops used in beer have been dried and molded into pellets.) The Fresh Hop Festival features breweries, live bluegrass music, and food trucks. Organizer Jake TeSelle, who’s collaborating with the Gallatin Valley Land Trust on the event, explains, “We are trying to more tangibly connect the beer drinker and general public to agriculture in the Valley.” A $20 ticket (available at mtfreshfest. com) provides access to unlimited samples and a commemorative glass. All proceeds will be donated to GVLT.

AERO Expo 2019: Seeding the Future October 25–27 @ Montana State University, Bozeman. The Alternative Energy Resources Organization (AERO) partners with MSU and community members to build on 45 years of commitment to sustainable agriculture. The weekend includes tours and sessions themed on farm-to-campus efforts, food justice, and local food. The keynote speaker is Dr. Ricardo Salvador, director of the Food and Environment Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists. Friday evening’s event, which is open to the public, features a Montana-inspired dessert buffet, cash bar, and inspiring PechaKucha-style talks. Register and learn more at aeromt.org/expo.
