Bring Your Group to the Farm

We invite your group to experience life on our vibrant working farm. Angelic Organics Learning Center hosts more than 100 groups at our farm each year, including schools (K-12), scouts, home schoolers, youth groups, and college classes.

The fun isn’t just for kids! Adult groups include garden clubs, faith groups, book clubs, and community organizations.

 

To schedule a custom program for a school or group, email Liz Whitehurst or call 815-389-8455.

What We Offer

  • Tours (1-2 hours) include an experiential introduction to the farm, emphasizing how soils, animals, plants, and people interact on an organic farm.
  • Day-long programs (4-5 hours) incorporate additional components such as work projects, nutrition and cooking, food systems literacy, and workshops on organic gardening or sustainable agriculture.
  • Some groups opt for overnight camping trips (2-5 days) which engage groups more fully in the life of the farm, experiencing some of the rhythms of a typical work day.

Facilities for visiting groups incorporate sustainable design features, and include an indoor workshop space, outdoor shelter, camping area, and composting toilets. Learn more about our farm and learning facilities.

School Field Trips

We work with each visiting group to create a custom learning experience that combines hands-on activities with opportunities for group reflection. School groups—from kindergarten through college—can meet curricular goals for environmental education, science, social studies, and more.
