Life-long learning and community building. 
 

If you are interested in a trip, please let me know.   I'll let you know if there is space and the status of the trip.

THANK YOU
TO DEB SHUBAT/ SHUBATS FRUITS.
 

It was an interesting adventure on Sunday Sept 13 to walk around her farm property, taste fresh pears, view drying garlic, see rutabagas, peak into greenhouses, enjoy flowers, and learn about her solar power and getting started in farming.  Please shop from her at the Duluth Farmers Market - Wednesdays and Saturdays. 
Buy her delicious crackers, 

fresh produce, and (in the spring) plants. 

Please make sure that when you write out a check
it is made to Wendy Up North.

A minimum number of participants is needed by the deadline for a trip to go.  To be complete your registration must include payment.  

This is the 5th year of offering day trips but it looks like this year is a cancelled year for the most part due to health/restrictions due to COVID-19. 

On Facebook I will post different personal outings I go on in the area and forward interesting online travels throughout the world.  I believe that regional and global travel broadens our understanding and learning potential and allows for fun and positive experiences. 

Will any trips be able to be held?  These are uncertain times. 

Keep safe. 

SORRY - ALL OF THESE TRIPS ARE CANCELLED DUE TO COVID19
