Mark Shepard is the renowned author of Restoration Agriculture: Real World Permaculture for Farmers. Mark is the CEO of Forest Agriculture Enterprises LLC and founder of Restoration Agriculture Development, Inc. He runs New Forest Farm, the 106-acre perennial agricultural savanna considered by many to be one of the most ambitious sustainable agriculture projects in the United States. A sought-after speaker both nationally and internationally, Mark has graciously offered to come to Winona to show support for development of the Sustainable Agriculture program at MSCS.

A workshop on local permaculture design concepts will be held at MSCS from 8 a.m. to noon. (This workshop is a separate event from the Speaker Series.)
