It may not always feel like spring....but each day offers more sun than the prior, and that means we're in full camp planning mode. Our goal remains the same: maximizing fun and growth for the campers by creating a welcoming place for kids to flourish.
May 5th is our Spring Open House from 10:00 - 3:00 PM at the farm. Come cuddle with goats, pet a chicken, roam the land and share a farm-fresh snack. Bring clothes to get dirty! To RSVP, click HERE.
If you're interested in seed planting at Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse, or would like to meet in person, please email us at food(at)naturesfarmcamp(dot)com
p.p.s. We just received news that Nature's Farm Camp will be awarded a Golden Beet Award as the 2018 Community Food Project winner, from the Illinois Stewardship Alliance. More to follow. 🙂

The Mike Nowak (radio) Show interviewed us and Rob Gardner of The Local Beet gave us a shout-out in his Good Food Fest Wrap-up. We were featured on WGN TV Mid-day News. Note: for the TV gig we borrowed a couple things from awesome Chicago friends, e.g. microgreens from local food innovator The Urban Canopy and the flat of mint from The Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse. Good Food on Every Table featured an article on Farm Camp .
