Neighbor to Neighbor | Farmers of Mill Creek & Petenwell Castle Rock Stewards
After presenting at a meeting, farmer John Eron walked up to lakeshore owner Rick Georgeson and said, “You bring lake people to my farm, and I'll bring farmers to your lakes.'" From there a relationship grew that has healed old wounds, opened minds, improved soil and water, energized two communities, and inspired new alliances in the Wisconsin River watershed.
Says Eron, “The lake group has given money for a no-till drill and a roller crimper to be rented to farmers for trials. But our greatest successes have come from being silly, noticing people, and dissolving judgements.”
