WELCOME TO THE CHICAGO FARMERS!

For the Chicago Farmers 2016 Summer Tour, we will visit the highly regarded Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences (CHAS), located in the Mount Greenwood neighborhood on the, south side of Chicago at 3857 W. 111th Street. The tour will take place on Thursday, August 11th, beginning at 10:00 am.

During our visit, the students will be on hand to conduct the tour of the facilities, explaining further the curriculum and their studies.
