A marvelous dinner showcasing Loyola University's Retreat and Ecology Campus farm fresh produce and locally sourced products. Farm Manager, Emily Zack, will talk about the farm and discuss “growing” tonight’s dinner. Evening starts with a wine reception and appetizers and proceeds to a five course wine dinner.
Join us each week this summer for our Friday farm stand at Loyola's Retreat and Ecology Campus in Woodstock. All produce is grown on campus and harvested the day of the stand. Varieties change each week and depend on what is in season but include fresh beets, lettuce, tomatoes, squash, beans, greens, okra…..many different fruits and veggies. Fresh bread baked from our kitchen too!
At the Loyola University Retreat and Ecology Campus, students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with what they’ve learned in class – something an urban setting couldn’t provide. Read this article in the Northwest Herald about LUREC's farm and ecological restoration work. VISIT
