The Bishop Hill Heritage Association is pleased to announce the gift of $250.00 from the Galesburg Community Foundation for the 2017 Jordbruksdagarna (Agriculture Days) on September 23 and 24. This educational event teaches young and old about pioneer life in the 19th century through demonstrations, musical performances, hands-on activities, and programs. For example, artisans will make rope, process flax, forge metal, and more. Visitors can also try their hand at shelling corn, making bricks, pressing cider, and making a corn husk doll.

The Galesburg Community Foundation (GCF) develops resources to equip and empower residents and nonprofit organizations to create a healthy community by building endowed and non-endowed funds, granting to nonprofit organizations, promoting collaboration, and addressing community priorities through the investment of resources. The BHHA would like to thank the Galesburg Community Foundation for generously supporting Jordbruksdagarna this year.
