Where Farm & Table are Just Steps Apart
The Wallace Centers of Iowa has postponed or canceled all indoor public events through Sept. 1. Our buildings are currently closed but the prairie path at the Country Life Center is open for social-distance walking. We’ll continue to monitor the evolving public health situation and make additional decisions to keep our staff, partners and participants safe. Updates will be provided as they become available.
At the current time, we’re offering online cooking classes and the Prairie Art Exhibit Indoors display. Planning is taking place for Pizza on the Prairie and the Prairie Art Exhibit & Festival. To help with your at-home meal preparation, many of Chef Katie’s favorite recipes are posted on our Farm to Table page.
