Slow Food Youth Network Chicago is kicking off their first year by curating a series of tours and events highlighting our local food system. From rooftop farms and beekeeping to recycling and composting facilities, this series will cover a wide range of food production topics. We invite youth and adults who are curious about their food systems to join us throughout the upcoming weeks!

Matthias Lampe, a local beekeeper in Chicago, will teach us about the importance of bees to our ecosystems and food systems. General Admission tickets are $10 and will benefit Slow Food Chicago and future beekeeping endeavors by Matthias Lampe. Pilsen residents get a discounted $5 ticket for this event so they can learn about bees making honey from flowers in their own neighborhood.

This event will take place rain or shine, as we will have access to an indoor space. Please meet near the honeycomb seats in El Paseo community garden next to Alivio Medical Center promptly at 2:00pm. Space is tight so get your tickets today!
