This semester’s SUST 230 Food online class, taught by Prof. Vicki Gerberich, plans to head out to Angelic Organics Farm in Caledonia IL next Saturday, October 24th, for a tour of a working biodynamic organic farm founded by Farmer John Peterson. Angelic Organics is a Community Supported Agriculture farm, growing vegetables and herbs for Chicago-area households since 1991.The tour will be from 11am – 1pm on Saturday October 24 and should cost $12 (pending enough people signing up). Friends and family are welcome, too!
Transportation to the farm — located about 75 minutes west of Schaumburg at 1547 Rockton Rd., Caledonia — will be either on your own or coordinated individually for carpooling. 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!
If interested in attending, please contact Vicki Gerberich no later than Monday, October 19th. Email Vicki at firstname.lastname@example.org with your confirmation, and be sure to include the names of all who will be attending for sure.
