Looks like I missed another good meeting yesterday. The meeting was held at the Garfield Park Conservatory (where our Building Urban Gardens meetings are held) and given by the Advocates for Urban Agriculture. The AUA is a “network of organizations and individuals working to promote urban agriculture in Chicago.” According to Gregory Bratton, Master Gardener for Healthy Southeast Chicago (that’s just one of the hats he wears), there was a good turnout for the meeting and he was put on their steering committee.
The Advocates for Urban Agriculture has links to many of the Chicago gardening/food organizations and I’ve added their link under Interesting Info. If you have any kind of interest in urban gardening, there’s an organization you can become involved in.
Wish I could have gone, but …
- It was ”time to make the donuts”
- I had to “bring home the bacon”
- “baby needed a new pair of shoes”
- I had to “make a little bread”
Well, you know what I mean. Hopefully next time the world I must live in (the one where you have to earn a living and meet deadlines) and the world I would like to live in (the one where work and fun live in blissful harmony) will be in sync with each other. Until next time…
