“Thank you to those that have helped us in the co-design of the Kernza in KC pilot project. The emerging research direction we are taking for this pilot will be to organize the project around investigating the place for Kernza (and other future perennial grains) in small urban agriculture settings at the hand scale. After listening to the community calls, this usability test seems like a unique opportunity to engage in a regional foodshed while keying in varied interests (including growing in polycultures and soil testing). We aim to provide participants with educational materials in addition to support through site visits and field days to engage this learning community as we investigate these methods together.”
