The Angelic Organics Learning Center is an exciting organization helping urban and rural residents build local food systems while offering opportunities to grow healthy food, a better quality of life, while connecting with farmers and the land, and learning agricultural and leadership skills. Their urban farming initiative is located in Rockford Illinois, with a farm in Caledonia as well.
Much of our food system has become disconnected from nourishment and is only about profit for a few. There was a time when almost all food was grown locally. Programs like this are helping to restore some balance to this system.
