Growing Power Chicago Turns 10!

February 25th, 2012- 1-5pm

Growing Power Chicago is Turning 10!  Celebrate by taking a Tour, Aquaponics Workshop and staying for Small Bites and Cheers!

Growing Power Chicago transforms communities by supporting people from diverse backgrounds and the environments in which they live through development of Community Food Systems. These systems provide high-quality, safe, healthy, affordable food for all residents in the community. Starting with a church garden in Woodlawn and another in the Cabrini Green neighborhood, Growing Power Chicago’s network has grown into 7 urban farm and community garden partnerships around the city with two more in the works.

After all that hard work it’s time to celebrate!
Tours: 1pm-5pm
Tours will be offered at the top of every hour starting at 1pm and ending at 5pm.

Aquaponics Workshop: 1pm-5pm
The workshop that we will be hosting will be a suggested 75 dollar donation, if you want to stay later for the Happy Hour and Silent Auction Reception it will be an extra 5 dollar donation

Small Bites, Cheers and Silent Auction: 4pm- 6pm
Our Happy Hour will feature delicious local beers and delicious appetizers from our SPECTACULAR Composting Partners.  We will have all of Iron St. on display and some excellent silent auction items that will feature the expertise of our simply sublime staff, who will also be on hand to chat with you about all aspects of Growing Power Chicago.

RSVP to or (773) 376-8882
We hope to see you there!
