Organic Vegetable, Mushroom, and Seed Production Farm Tour

Dexter, MI 

Sunday, August 18, 2019
2-5 p.m.

Nature and Nurture is an independent, organic farm-based, diversified business rooted in Michigan. The passionate and reputable team is purpose-driven and shares their knowledge as well as their seeds. For almost two decades, Erica Kempter and Mike Levine have operated a residential landscaping service and plant nursery in Ann Arbor, specializing in edible and native gardens, while also growing and marketing organic, log-grown shiitake mushrooms.

Over time, they learned about corporate patenting and control of seeds, as well as the loss of Great Lakes heirloom seed diversity. In 2013, they moved to their current farm locations and founded Nature and Nurture Seeds to protect and promote open-source, biodiverse, and regionally adapted seeds. On this tour, discover a Midwest organic seed production farm, experience their fruit orchard, and see how they produce gourmet shiitake mushrooms.
