For our May meetup, we'll be joining Advocates for Urban Agriculture for their Urban Fields Day at Bronzeville Neighborhood Farm. Urban Fields Days are unique, monthly events that seek to connect community-based urban growing projects with needed people power. Projects range from planting and harvesting to light construction. No prior experience necessary, and there are tasks to suit all experience levels! AUA will also provide educational programming around composting and heavy metal soil testing. Wear closed toed shoes and clothing you don't mind getting dirty.
We'll be heading over to a community BBQ at Legends Farm around the corner afterwards to eat and be merry. All are welcome to join!
The event is free and open to all, but spaces are limited, so be sure to register in advance here if you're planning to attend!
