Angelic Organics Learning Center helps urban and rural people build local food systems. We offer opportunities to grow healthy food and a better quality of life, connect with farmers and the land, and learn agricultural and leadership skills. The Learning Center, a nonprofit organization, reaches more than 4,000 people each year through our programs at partner farms and urban growing sites in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Our On-Farm Initiative offers hands-on learning at Angelic Organics, the community supported farm featured in the award-winning film The Real Dirt on Farmer John. We engage the body, heart, and mind to experience life on a vibrant working farm. We offer tours, skills workshops, and custom learning opportunities for individuals, families, schools, and community groups. Our Farmer Training Initiative works to train our next generation of sustainable farmers. We help urban and rural people learn directly from our region?¯?¿?½?�??¢ï¿½??¯ï¿½??¿ï¿½??½?�??¯ï¿½??¿ï¿½??½?s best farmers and begin growing for market.
