Autumn in Grand Rapids Michigan

Whether this is your first time in Grand Rapids or your 100th, take some time to learn about the city. From the history of the Pantlind Hotel to the Grand River, to Heritage Hill, a city tour guide will join us as we drive around town, sharing knowledge of the past and present. Then, visit Frederik Meijer Gardens for a behind the scenes tour of the on-site greenhouses that supply these majestic gardens. Hear from the horticulture staff what it takes to maintain the landscapes, sculptures and indoor exhibits. Then, take some free time to wander the indoor spaces.  

Charlotte potato

Planning to include a maple syrup station at your next Project RED? Have you used the Potato Ag Mag during a classroom visit? Maybe your Young Farmers are hosting a county wide farm tour for high school students. Whatever your teaching method, this tour will offer you tips and tricks when reaching audiences of all ages.  Visit a sugar shack and explore maple syrup resources from the Agriculture in the Classroom website. Tour a potato farm to watch how potatoes are processed while learning how to safely provide tours for large groups on your own farm. Educating others about agriculture can get sticky, but with the right tools and techniques it can flow pretty smooth!

Smoked Meats

Two engineers go on a fishing trip and…find out how locally owned Grilla Grills got started in the grill and pellet smoker business. Hear from their in-house chef how to perfectly smoke cuts of meat, trends in grilling and what the home-BBQ chef is looking for in locally raised and butchered meats. Round out the tour learning more about consumer purchasing preferences and direct from farm sales at Victory Farms in Hudsonville.
