:: The Wormfarm Institute in Sauk County, Wisconsin, is rural creative placemaking at its best. It's a 40-acre organic vegetable farm and creative hub, begun 15 years ago by two artists (Jay Salinas and his partner Donna Neuwirth). While the two Chicago-born and bred artists had a lot to learn about farming, they brought with them a deep appreciation of culture in all its forms and a real curiosity about their new community. Wormfarm aims to recreate the link that once existed between culture and agriculture with innovative and intuitive projects that center around a sense of the land and the community. In this conversation with the NEA's Josephine Reed, Wormfarm co-founder, Jay Salinas talks about Wormfarm and its projects.
