Field Trip to Bob’s Fresh and Local Farm
Sat., June 24, (time TBD), BYO picnic following the tour
Brunner Forest Preserve Farm, 18N681 Illinois Rt. 31, Dundee, IL
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND — Join us on a field trip to Elmhurst resident Bob Vierow’s farm, home to Bob’s Fresh and Local CSA. Bob uses crop rotation to control weed and pest pressures, purchases organic seed and grows all his produce using organic methods, never using chemical fertilizers, weed killers, or pesticides on any food he grows.
We’ll take a hayride out to the fields, stop to see the farm animals, and visit the greenhouse. Bring a picnic lunch and eat on the property after the tour.
Families and non-members are welcome to attend. RSVPs are required by June 17. We’re also arranging carpools, so let us know if you need a ride! firstname.lastname@example.org; 630/426-9789
