Get into some goat yoga

Chicago's GlennArt Farm combines goats and yoga! After the success of the Goat Yoga classes at their recent annual Goat-A- Palooza event, GlennArt Farm decided to add four more sessions to their schedule, opening up their pasture to those who wish to do "downward dogs" with soft, serene, and slightly bouncy baby goats.

Sessions will take place at GlennArt Pasture, 400 block of N. Waller Ave., at 10 a.m. on July 1, July 8 and July 9. Fee: $20 per class.

Tuesdays with PCC

The PCC Austin Farmstand will be open Tuesday, 6/27/17 from 12PM – 5PM and every Tuesday after that.  We will be offering double value incentives for all Link purchases so please stop by and visit!
