September & October, 2017
We're enjoying harvest season and feeling thankful for a wonderful five weeks of camp. We've packed up supplies and have time to reflect on the summer and strategize on how to improve the experience for 2018. Our goal remains the same: lots of smiles while making a positive impact on the lives of our campers. We posted a number of photos on Facebook and Instagram and expect to have the rest up soon.
Thank you to all those who participated this summer or who visited us earlier in the year at various events, including the Camp Open House and the Good Food Fest in Chicago. Read a recent Good Food Fest article by Tim Magner. Thanks also to the Kilbourn Park Organic Greenhouse for sharing space to help us start our seeds.
Information on our 2018 sessions will be available here by early November. If you have any specific questions, please email us at food(at)naturesfarmcamp(dot)com

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 .
p.s. We're thrilled to be supporting members of the Chicagoland coalition of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). We love the local 'Band of Farmers.'
