Our goal is to integrate visual art making and public artworks within our urban farms, gardens and Fresh Moves mobile market programming. This summer, we are starting with a series of three workshops at the South Chicago Farm.

UGC farms serve as a safe space for individuals of all ages to explore their interests, work collectively, share their talents and learn from one another. We hope to add to this experience by inviting artists and crafty individuals to provide workshops that utilize the farm for materials and inspiration.

This summer, UGC is offering a series of monthly “Food + Fitness + Art” weekend workshops from July through September. In the morning, will host “Goat Yoga” combining meditation, yoga and goat snuggles, followed by a “How to” Harvest 101 demonstration. Arts workshops are scheduled in the afternoon from 1:30 – 3:30pm. We are looking for inclusive offerings that are fun and deepen the mission of UGC. Programs should be designed to encompass all-ages, and should have a component that children can participate in,

We will provide a modest supply budget and teaching stipend.

The class size may range from 15-30 participants. If you have a limit to the number of individuals who can successfully receive instruction, please include that in the proposal.
