Their 10-acre teaching farm on the 40-acre eco-campus is located in the historic Black farming community of Pembroke Township, Illinois. The residents of Pembroke Township are stewards of the Kankakee Sands, one of the most prized ecosystems in Illinois and home to the endangered dwarfed black oaks. We are honored to carry forward this tradition of stewardship, which dates back to the people indigenous to this land, the Potawatomi. 100% of their energy comes from solar power (with a generator on cloudy days, for an interim time), and their water comes from a well. All buildings were built by the community, with a minimal carbon footprint.
