Elawa Farm

This is a story of resilience and adaptation. Like the soil they tend, the people at Elawa Farm have spent a century adjusting to climate, changing ownership, and even fickle access to resources. It is precisely because of this ingenuity and resilience that drew Laura Calvert to join as the farm’s executive director in January 2020. Between its historical and architectural significance, and being situated next to an actual savanna, Laura says “There is no other farm like Elawa that I am aware of in the Midwest.”
