This semester’s SUST 230 Food online class, taught by Prof. Vicki Gerberich, plans to head out to Angelic Organics Farm in Caledonia IL this Sunday, October 9th, 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 12pm – 2pm on Sunday October 9th and will cost $15. 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!
