The Friends of Grimes Farm is an informal group of people associated chiefly with the Grimes Farm Nature Center near Marshalltown Iowa, but who are interested in studying and promoting both conservation and sustainable agriculture in Iowa.
The Friends of Grimes Farm sponsor the Grimes Farm Run, a popular summertime event on the central Iowa running circuit, and, with proceeds from the Run, they donate to other conservation-oriented projects in Marshalltown and Marshall County.
In 2013 we are excited to be sponsoring the 13th annual Grimes Farm Run in early July. You'll find a good deal more information about this popular annual event by clicking the "GF Run" link in the navigation box above, and preparations for this year's edition can be followed most closely by reading or subscribing to the Grimes Farm blog.
