May & June, 2017
Come visit us at the farmer's market! Part of the Green City Market on May 20th, from 7:00 - 1:00 in Chicago's Lincoln Park, we'll be making newspaper pots with kids. Leave with a seedling ready to plant!
Thank you to all who attended the Camp Open House on May 6th. For most of the rest of May and June, we'll be back and forth from the farm preparing for the first session, beginning in July. If you'd like to visit in person, please phone or email Tim at 773.580.7780 & tim(at)naturesfarmcamp(dot)com
Thank you to all those who came and visited us this winter at various events, including 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 five one-week sessions this July & August is available here.

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 .
