This past summer brought many changes to Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, located just outside of Finland, Minnesota. The staff and many volunteers have been working hard to help farm director David Abazs make his vision for a robust local food system in the north woods a reality. In the past two months, the crew at Wolf Ridge has completed two new 30' x 96' hoop houses, finished a new timber frame education pavilion, and installed a pizza oven-all in time for the busy, full-day curriculum season for school groups.
