new year, new crew!
We'll miss you, Goli!
We are sad to announce that Goli Ziolek has resigned from Angelic Organics Learning Center and the Farmer Training team. Goli facilitated our Stateline Farm Beginnings® course and helped drive the CRAFT network. Through her work, she created wonderful connections and relationships with our experienced and beginning farmers.
Goli is dedicated to helping aspiring and beginning farmers learn how to make their farming dreams a reality. We will miss her wonderful facilitation skills, her deep appreciation for farmers and her work with many veteran organizations. We wish her well in her future endeavors!
2023 Roots & Wings CSA Now Open
The Roots & Wings Farm & Garden is a 1/2 acre organically grown urban farm located in Blackhawk Courts a Rockford Housing Authority property.
We offer a full (weekly) and half (biweekly) CSA share for the summer, a biweekly fall share, and a honey share as well. Supporting our CSA program provides employment opportunities for Blackhawk Courts residents and allows us to purchase needed equipment and supplies in advance. By participating in our CSA program you will not only receive an abundance of fresh, locally grown vegetables, but will also contribute to our educational programs in the Blackhawk community.
At the farm we grow over 40 different varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs - all of which are grown using organic practices. All vegetables are picked and packed carefully, and stored on site in our walk in cooler. We maintain the highest standards to insure your vegetables are kept fresh and are of the highest quality.
We know that you have many options for purchasing your vegetables, but we invite you to join us in our 10th year of providing vegetables to the residents of Rockford and the surrounding communities.
We have a limited number of summer (full, half) and fall CSA shares available, Also, you can support our program by gifting a CSA share to community members. So sign up today!
