Angelic Organics is one of the largest CSA farms in the country, with more than 1,400 subscribers from northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. The Learning Center, which is located on the 220-acre farm, hosts educational programs for youth groups and CSA members, and it serves the farm’s many volunteers and donors. The lower level, which includes kitchen facilities, is a workshop area, with several tables for classroom activities. The second floor includes office space and a beautiful balcony that features a bannister made from tree branches. The open balcony layout allows air to circulate between the two levels.
The Angelic Organics Learning Center was completed in 2004, and it’s one of the most impressive Whole Trees structures in the country. In addition to the main structure, the Learning Center features a cob oven and an open-air pavilion, both of which were made using whole trees.
