Tucson, AZ


Brewers, Bakers and Pizza Makers!

Grain School is the important link in our transition to a more local and 
sustainable food system. Scaling your operation to a manageable effort, 
sourcing, planting, growing, harvesting, cleaning, storage and milling 
will all be addressed. Learn the history, philosophy and genetics as 
well as the practical applications of growing, harvesting and milling 
heritage grains.

Grain School features Glenn Roberts, the founder of Anson Mills, 
Columbia, SC. Glenn is the driving force behind the creation of a 
network of organic farmers growing heritage corn, wheat and rice on 5 - 
30 acre plots.

Also presenting:

Jeff Zimmerman, owner of the historic Hayden Flour Mills in Tempe, 
Arizona, who is working with Native Seeds/SEARCH to reintroduce heritage 
wheat and corn as local food crops for Arizona.
Gary Nabhan, co-founder of Native Seeds/SEARCH, author and eco-educator
Facilitated by Bill McDorman, Executive Director of Native Seeds/SEARCH 
& Belle Starr, Deputy Director.

$700 tuition. Three spots left! Register online.
