    Description 

    Please join The Chicago Farmers on Monday, October 21st, as we welcome Angelica Carmen, Sustainability Specialist at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. Angelica will share the story of Fairway Farms, starting as an unused parking lot, now offering a sustainable approach for providing locally sourced produce and honey for the Club’s banquet operations. We’ll also hear from Angelica what has worked well and what has not to pave the way for the future of the Farm and new sustainability program at Cog Hill.

    Speaker

    Angelica Carmen
    Sustainability Specialist 
    Cog Hill Golf and Country Club

    Angelica graduated from Loyola University Chicago with a Bachelor’s in Communications Studies and Environmental Advocacy. While at Loyola, she held two urban agriculture internships at her school and at a local restaurant working with aquaponics, beekeeping, farmers markets, and growing biodynamically. Currently, she is the Sustainability Specialist at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club managing all of their environmental programs. She built Cog Hill’s culinary farm, ‘Fairway Farms & Apiary’, that supplies fresh produce to the club’s kitchen,  as well as local breweries and restaurants, is the keeper of 12 honeybee hives, developed the club’s composting and recycling programs, hosts Farm to Table Dinners onsite, and transitions out-of-play areas on the golf course to native pollinator gardens and prairie habitats. In her [limited] free time, Angelica loves to work out with her pugs, practice guitar, and play sports. She is passionate about all things good for you and good for the planet, and is looking forward to getting to know all of you.
