Shane Fischer will also be there to write custom poetry! All you have to do is give Shane a few details and he will type you up your very own personalized poem!

There will also be opportunities to meet one on one with board members or volunteers from Equality South Dakota, Sioux Falls Pride, and The Transformation Project. Learn more about volunteering and how to take action.

According to the Family Day at the Farm's Facebook event page, "Donations from refreshments, poems, and more help support Equality South Dakota’s mission across the state. Make sure to drop a few dollars in our donation jars! Every dollar raised at Family Day at the Farm will be used to fuel our fight to defend the rights and well-being LGBTQ+ folks and their families in South Dakota."

The farm is ADA accessible. Masks are recommended and will be provided free of charge.
