Earthrise is a small farm and educational center which is an extension of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, Mankato MN. The two sisters who run the farm, Kay and Annette Fernholz, belong to the order and have converted their parents' old family farm into a busy hub which acts as an important part of the community. They run a small Community Supported Agriculture program, offer classes in things like bread baking, canning, pottery and healing touch, and sell produce at local farmers markets. The goal of Earthrise Farm is to reconnect people with the earth and all it offers, from fresh organic vegetables to a deep and sustaining spirituality.
