This year’s National Slow Food Day of Action, “Dig In! Break Ground, Break Bread,” is Saturday, September 25th, and Lynden is celebrating by hosting a resource fair from 1-4 pm that highlights the work of local food activists, organizations, and vendors. The slow food movement envisions a world in which all people can eat food that is good for them, good for the people who grow it, and good for the planet. Our fair will offer an opportunity to learn more about slow food, find out what local organizations are up to, and sample some of their wares.

Over the next few days, I’ll be posting a little about our participants. First up is Slow Food Wisconsin Southeast.

If you’ve been to Lynden, you know that the reception desk where I spend my Wednesdays offers one of the best views of the grounds (apart, of course, from actually being outside). Through a panel of glass doors, I can see a great deal of the garden: works by Aldo Calo and Bernard Heiliger to my left; the Big Lake in front of me, home to Marta Pan’s Floating Sculpture No. 3, which drifts in and out of view; and to my right, an expanse of garden that includes many of our bigger pieces, like Mark di Suvero’s Lover, which seems to change color depending on the sunlight and time of day.

Today is your last chance to see Inside/Outside: Linda Wervey Vitamvas and Kevin Giese. Both artists have work on display in the gallery and on the grounds.

Additionally, Kevin Giese will be participating in today’s Guest or Invader? Buckthorn in River Hills discussion, with Master Gardener Darlene Lochbihler. The event begins at 5:30 pm.

Feel free to bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden! (You may also want to bring bug spray, to ward off both invasive and non-invasive varieties.)

When Harry and Peg Bradley began to develop the landscape at Lynden during the 1930s, water was an important element. Three bodies of water were excavated during those years. The largest body, just over 3 acres, is referred to as the Big Lake. To the east of the Big Lake, between the road and the property line, is the Lily Pond, which covers approximately one tenth of an acre. Located just to the west of Henry Moore’s “Two-Piece Reclining Figure No. 9” is a body of water sometimes referred to as the Wading Pond or the Little Lake. All three bodies of water have unique characteristics that allow their biological organisms to function in different ways.
