Mayor Rahm Emanuel visits our project!

2 comments

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel stopped by our Wood Street Urban Farm today to see what we're doing on the farms and check out the site for our new Kickstarter hoophouse! We were so excited to welcome him to our farm and show him the positive side of Englewood. Check out this great photo of the Mayor with our interns on a chilly morning in Chicago!

      That's awesome that the Mayor stopped by, hopefully this accelerates the funding towards the $20,000 pledge goal.

    You'll get all the above rewards, plus, we will grow two organic heirloom seedlings for you to plant and grow on your patio, porch, or windowsill. Seedlings will be started and nurtured by interns at our Su Casa Market Garden. We've specially selected varieties that will grow well in containers and thrive in the Chicago climate. What's more, we'll add your name to a "wall of supporters" that will be put up on site at the new hoophouse and list your contribution in a special section of our annual report.

    You'll get all the above rewards, and, we will harvest a pound of Growing Home honey specially for you. To be clear, this isn't any ordinary honey. Our staff collects this sweet local treat from hives at our Su Casa Market Garden only once per year, meaning that only a lucky few will get to enjoy this unique honey produced by urban bees living right here in Chicago! And, we'll throw in a Growing Home cookbook with veggie-based honey recipes submitted by our staff and supporters.
