Thank you to @mintcreek_il for fundraising money for Green City Market at their last farm dinner by @sarinkavage! We had a great time touring the farm, eating delicious local food and meeting new people (and animals)! Here's Harry Carr with a three week old goat! Harry's commitment to sustainability and modeling his farm on basic ecological principles was inspiring. Also, a huge thank you to @middlebrowbeer and @coopershawkvineyard for donating the beer and wine! . One of our favorite experiences on the farm was learning about their turkeys. Hint: pre-order your turkey from @mintcreek_il today since they're limited! Also, sign up for their CSA!

The GCM team loved spending time with @alicelouisewaters at @mapleandash for the @edibleschoolyard dinner by @chefdannygrant! She gave us a great piece of advice for starting our own edible education programs at the Manierre School & DePaul College Prep: do one thing and do it all the way! First thing we need: supplies for our CPS students. Sign-up for our newsletter and stay tuned to how you can help us and donate supplies.
