It was a crazy wet spring (and it's been a wet and cool summer so far), but we're doing sun dances to help the tomatoes and peppers.
Camp is now happening and, like in years past, we began each week with high expectations. We believe kids are more capable than they know.
Of note: We're thrilled to be working with Angelic Organics Learning Center. The 200 acre is unique in the midwest, plus their facilities are top-notch and the staff is world-class.
If we don't see you at camp this summer, please consider visiting this fall. Because you asked, we created a fall event. Here's the link to our Pie Bakes for Families at the Farm on September 28 and October 12. It's $20 per person and space is limited.
P.P.S. We love and support local farms and regenerative organic agriculture. Nature's Farm Camp won the Golden Beet Award in the 2018 Community Food Project category, from the Illinois Stewardship Alliance.
