Angela Tedesco

Join us for an afternoon at the Iowa Arboretum with lifetime PFI member Angela Tedesco, a retired vegetable CSA farmer – and newly published author. Angela will discuss her new book, “Finding Turtle Farm.” We’ll hear excerpts from the book and have time for a Q&A with Angela. After the program, attendees can explore the arboretum free of charge.

Angela owned and operated Turtle Farm, near Granger, Iowa, for 17 years. As one of the first vegetable CSAs in Iowa, she was a pioneer and mentor to many. Angela is a former PFI board member, and with her husband, John, is a past recipient of PFI’s Farmland Owner Legacy Award. Nan Bonfils, also a lifetime PFI member, will host the event.

FindingTurtleFarmSpeaker: Angela Tedesco

About “Finding Turtle Farm”: On a small farm in 1995, Angela Tedesco planted the seeds of Turtle Farm, introducing Community Supported Agriculture to Iowa. In “Finding Turtle Farm,” Angela recounts this adventure in all its down-and-dirty work and wonder, from plan and plot to harvest, in an ultimately hopeful account of what it means to meet the most basic of human needs.

Meal Information: Light, seasonal refreshments will be provided.

RSVPs are appreciated by Sept. 8
