Opportunity Knocks - KnockOut Farm
We are so excited at the KnockOut Farm to be wrapping up the harvest of summer crops and looking forward to new culinary delights for the fall season. Following our focus on our fall theme of FLOW, which reminds us to remain flexible and adjustable as things change, we are studying helpful processes on the farm from beginning to end starting with proper harvesting techniques and food safety and sanitation rules. Our Warriors (KnockOut Farm participants with intellectual and developmental disabilities) are also helping with the redesign of the farm to include a wash pack station and meditation garden, which incorporate the FLOW principle. With every step there is a purpose, form, and function...we “learn to understand” and stay adaptable and always open as life on the farm is ever-changing and so are we! Come learn the way of the Warrior and join us for a fun, fall harvest and horticultural therapy reflection focused on being present in the moment.

Location: 50 Madison Street, Maywood, IL 60153
