Welcome to the Practical Farmers of Iowa Blog! We are hoping that this blog will allow us to keep everyone informed about what is going on at PFI, and hopefully give you some insight into the staff as well!

This week I am putting the final touches on preparation for our 2009 Summer Camp. It is going to be a great week, with a-lot of really neat lessons and a great chance to just be outside. Lots of work has gone into the planning of these lessons, and they should be really fun. There are about 25 kids coming out, and we are going to be swimming, doing archery, lots of hiking, and of course, getting dirty. The Insect Zoo from the ISU Entomology department is coming out, and will give the kids a chance to be up close and personal with some really cool “specimens.”Camp this year is going to be a ton of fun, and I am really excited about learning and playing with everyone coming out to the Des Moines Area Y-Camp next week. Lets hope for no rain!
