GRANITE FALLS, Minn. — Pioneer PBS’s Prairie Yard & Garden program will feature a story about South Dakota State University’s Local Food Education Center on Thursday, January 26 at 7:30 p.m.

Located in Brookings, South Dakota, the Local Foods Education Center at SDSU sits on a 1.2-acre site. The outdoor classroom had its grand opening in 2017. The facility is a hub for teaching students about small-scale food production and food sustainability as a response to a growing “consumer demand for food that is locally produced, marketed and consumed,” according to SDSU’s website. 

In “SDSU Local Foods,” PY&G Host Mary Holm learns about the classes offered for students at the Local Food’s Education Center and how students are providing access to local, healthy and affordable food to their communities.
