Transforming the Hood for G.O.O.D.
(Growing Our Own Destiny)
to Fork is a
way of life
Our mission is to transform the hood for G.O.O.D. using urban agriculture as a tool for community engagement, empowerment and employment.
With a single seed, not much bigger than the period at the end of this sentence, we hope to rebuild and restore South Oak Park to a healthier place where all families have equitable access to the resources they need to thrive.
Starting with a few plants in the backyard, our vision has grown to showing communities the answers contained in the soil.

It's that time again! There's a bug going around and this time you want to prevent it, the herbal way... Tune into mother earth as she provides natural remedies like yarrow, mullein and elderberry (just to name a few) to soothe and boost your immune system. Be prepared this season and aid the whole household's transition with teas, tincture and syrups. Hosted by Culinarian and Herbal Mama, Judith Yisrael, join us and see what she's working on this season!
Come learn how to create your own dye baths and add a pop of color to natural fabric from food scraps. We will be exploring how to extract hues of yellow, brown, pink & blue from onion skins, purple cabbage and black beans! We will also introduce an iron modifier to get deeper & dark shades. A fun and easy craft, you'll never look at food waste the same again! Each participant will go home with a hand dyed silk and/or cotton towel they dye in class.
