19 Jul

What: Student-run schoolyard marketplace featuring AGC garden produce and products by students and community partners.

Where: 4647 West 47th Street, Chicago, IL, in the parking lot of our K-2 building. 

When: 2:00-4:00 PM

Why: much of the proceeds will go back to AGC to support further extended learning opportunities

Tomorrow will be the opening of our student-run schoolyard marketplace! We hope to see friends and family there as well as those of you who have not yet been to visit our incredible school.

This week in summer camp, students have been exploring all aspects of an earth-centered enterprise and developing ideas, brands and products of their own. Some of the student-generated initiatives include:

  • Homemade crayons
  • Veggies from the AGC garden
  • Juisa 
  • Fruit Kabobs
  • Organic Tamales made with olive oil rather than lard
  • Homemade peppermint- coconut toothpaste

See you tomorrow!
