SAUK COUNTY – It was an occasion tailor-built for social distancing – a 50-as well as mile guided street vacation by means of the scenic performing farmland of Sauk County, marked on a map with roadside poetry, knowledge and explanations about farming and temporary artwork installations.

The “Farm/Artwork DTour” was component of the Wormfarm Institute’s “Fermentation Fest,” which ran from September 26 via October 4. Mainly because of Covid-19, all the in-particular person lessons that ordinarily run as portion of the event have been cancelled as ended up other elements of the celebration that need shut speak to.

But the eighth once-a-year “agri/cultural” tour went on as planned. It was a absolutely free journey past lovely farmsteads and rolling cropland of Sauk County for all those who desired to venture outside. It was an chance to investigate large artwork installations on farmland, established by artists from all over the region. Organizers reported this year’s artwork tour concerned a new route, punctuated by “site-responsive” artwork.
