Pie Patch Crop Mob

  • The Pie Patch (at Su Casa Catholic Worker) 5045 S. Laflin Chicago, IL 60609 (map)

It's time for an urban Crop Mob! On September 20th, we'll send volunteers to the Pie Patch - Chicago's first organic you-pick fruit farm in Back of the Yards!

The Pie Patch is a pick-your-own farm, growing perennial fruits and annual vegetables traditionally used in pies: strawberries, apples, pears, plums, raspberries, rhubarb, sweet squash and pumpkin, sweet potatoes and concord grapes. 

The Pie Patch was founded by Breanne Heath, a long-time friend of Slow Food Chicago and a 2014 Terra Madre delegate!
