see some photos at the project blog: http://garlicandgreens.info/2012/05/tedxuchicago/
Also, for those of you in Chicago, you are cordially invited to two special events this month:
2) informal panel discussion on Tuesday May 8, 7pm - FREE
In this group discussion titled "Rooted: food and farming initiatives as regional artworks" we will examine ways
that innovative agricultural and culinary projects assert new
understandings of spaces, ideals, tools, and relationships. Food is a
common language with which we can talk about topics such as
sustainability, local economies, nutrition, access, with many different
types of people. These creative initiatives are about the pleasures of
food, understanding diverse histories of cuisine, and bringing people
together around a table to discuss the issues that are important to
their lives in Chicago and elsewhere.
2) intimate vegan soul food dinner Wednesday May 16, 6pm - $30 prepaid
We are teaming up with chef Eric May of Roots and Culture for a supper club series called
"Piranha Club". Guest chefs include Dara Cooper of Fresh Moves mobile
grocery and Chef Tsadakeeyah of Majani Catering. The menu will include
peanut butter collard greens, okra & mushrooms, baked bbq black-eyed
peas, cornbread, yam-ginger pie, sweet tea and mint juleps. The event is $30 paid in
advance and there are only 10 seats available, so get your tickets ASAP at http://piranhaclub4.eventbrite.com/
We're getting the garden ready for the warm season and looking forward to planting lots of soul food veggies. If you have any favorite recipes or garden photos you want to share, please send them along. We'd love to include stories from our supporters on the project blog.
