The sunshine, a cool breeze, heck even the rain we’ve been having (not to mention finally resisting the urge to wrap yourself in a snuggie every time you venture outside of the house) - they’re all signs that spring has definitely “sprung” and we are slowly but surely warming up to the summer months Chicago waits all year for. Sounds like the perfect time to reconnect to your “roots” - or at the very least to the roots of the pleasures of nature’s bounty. What better way to reconnect than by spending some time in Slow Food Chicago’s very own community garden? July 11th (next Saturday) is your chance at the preSERVE Garden Volunteer Day (located at 12th Place and Central Park Ave). Hang with some other rad volunteers, get some dirt under your nails, and if you’re still feeling some of the independence day cook-off spirit - BYOG [bring your own grillin’ grub] to cook up and nosh on after all the “dirty” work is done. More details below. Hope you can join us!
