Summer Camp 2012: Big Plans and Two Invitations to Join In!

27 Jun

We would like to share with you our exciting plans for Summer Camp and extend an invitation to join us for environmental presentations on Tuesdays through Thursdays and our weekly schoolyard global markets on Fridays.

On Fridays, we invite you to help our students celebrate their learning about the aesthetics and economics of the schoolyard marketplace! Youth Farmers’ Markets will take place each Friday in the 47th Street Parking Lot from 2-4pm.  Come purchase organic produce, popsicles, agua fresca, and even some summer shoes! 

Youth Run Farmers’ Markets Schedule: Friday, July 20, July 27, and

 August 3 from  2:00-4:00pm

The Garden Fresh Masters Series, exciting presentations by environmental community leaders will be held before lunch, from 11am- 12pm. You are invited to stay and purchase an AGC lunch for $3.00 per person. During summer camp, lunch menus will be determined each week based on the harvest from our garden as well as seasonal offerings from our local farmers!

Please RSVP to (jschneiderman@agcchicago.org) by 12:00 PM on the day before your visit so we can plan lunch!
