Work Days

Is your group looking for a one-of-a-kind service opportunity and a team-building experience? We would love to host you at our 2.5-acre urban farm in Skokie where you will experience hands-on, educational volunteer work activities that fit into our mission of sustainably-grown food, biodiversity, horticulture and permaculture. All group work days are customized to your group’s needs and abilities. Email info@thetalkingfarm.org to arrange a time for your group visit.
