Two programs will take place this summer, one in June and one in August.

The June Quest experience focuses on gardening and wellness. Participants will learn about urban farming and CLC’s new urban farm project, get a behind-the-scenes view of CLC’s Horticulture Garden, create a container garden, experience the calming effect of watercolor sketches and explore sustainable landscaping.

The final day will feature an exclusive tour of the Chicago Botanic Gardens, including a Horticulture Therapy session and access to various exhibits. Learn more about this experience at

The August Quest experience explores the war in Ukraine and its impact. Through examination of historical and cultural contexts, participants will engage in powerful discussions that present thought-provoking perspectives.

The final day will feature a trip to Chicago’s Ukrainian Village to experience the rich culture through visits to the Ukrainian cultural arts museum and Delta Shop with handcrafted Ukrainian goods. Learn more about this experience at
