If you, like me, saw the phrase "Pie Patch" and immediately fell in love - first of all, call me. Secondly, do we have a volunteer opportunity that was made for you. The Pie Patch is a pick-your-own farm in the Back-of-the-Yards that grows perennial fruits and annual veg (think strawberries, apples, pears, plums, raspberries, rhubarb, sweet squash, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, concord grapes). What do these items have in common...? They are traditionally baked in PIES! Flakey crust + goods from the earth = YUM. Breanne Heath founded this little slice of heaven (pun intended) - a long-time friend of Slow Food Chicago and a 2014 Terra Madre delegate to boot. You just fell in love a little more - didn't you? Then what are you waiting for - sign up for this urban Crop Mob coming up this Sunday (9/20).
