Memories from the Farm: Brown Bag Lunch

Ron Johnson from the University of Illinois Extension will talk about, “Being in the green state of mind,” along with using native plants and heirloom seeds in your garden.

The Sycamore History Museum presents a series of programs to expand upon themes currently offered in the exhibition, “Memories from the Farm.” The series will explore the history of early farming, from Native Americans to John Deere, including a snapshot of the local agricultural history; businesses; clubs; the DeKalb County Fair; women on the farm; the steam show; and other topics, like organic farming, agribusiness, preservation of antique barns, and the challenges of developing and sustaining a family farm.

This event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome. For more information, contact the Sycamore History Museum at 815.895.5762 or
