November 2015 Meeting @ Grow Well Farms (formerly "Growing Healthy People")
Carol Besenjak (left), the Executtive Director of this non-profit organization, gave us a wonderful presentation. We had a great turn out, too, of club members, photos below. This farm in Grayslake provides locally grown produce and small agriculture and seeks to provide jobs for veterans, in addition to growing healthy produce.. Cheryl herself is a veteran. Through the use of aquaponics and hydroponics the young plants are nourished and thrive. They also have another area where micro-greens are grown and harvested for sale. They provide tremendous nutrition. The aquaponics involve cold-water fish, a filtration system and use of special lighting to provide rich nitrogen to the plants. They grow much faster than plants grown in soil. We tasted varieties of these greens and they tasted great! If you are interested in good nutrition and buying any of these things you can contact Cheryl @ 847-609-3228 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to order. She also attends farmer's markets. ,
