Example of EatingGreen in the Chicagoland Area
Join us for a fun and fact-filled tour of the legendary Angelic Organics Farm this Sunday, October 9th from 12-2pm. Angelic Organics is of a working biodynamic organic farm founded by Farmer John Peterson. It is located just about 2 hours northwest of Chicago, outside of Rockford, Illinois, in Caledonia. It's an amazing place doing wonderful things to build and promote the local and sustainable food movement. The farm and its associated educational organization is doing some spectacular work in promoting sustainable agriculture and we are very lucky to have this opportunity and therefore, anyone who eats(!) should visit this farm!
Angelic Organics is a Community Supported Agriculture farm, growing vegetables and herbs for Chicago-area households since 1991. The tour will be from 12pm – 2pm on Sunday October 9th and will cost $15. This is a really awesome opportunity to get an up close and personal look at the workings of a local, family-owned, community-driven farm. Dress for the weather and prepare to be outside!
Transportation to the farm — This is a "get-there-on-your-own" field trip, but we can certainly coordinate transportation for anyone interested.

Tour Time: 12pm - 2pm (Please arrive a few minutes early)
