Remembering Abby Mandel
December 12, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 9:00 pmDonation
Prairie Grass Cafe is celebrating Abby Mandel’s life (1932-2008), remembering her and keeping her vision alive. It is raising money for the Green City Market’s The Edible Gardens and the market’s 20th anniversary. Donations will go to The Edible Gardens at the Lincoln Park Zoo and run by the Market.
“I’m giving all our guests at Prairie Grass Cafe an opportunity to contribute on that day. Guest donations will go directly to The Edible Gardens, located in the Lincoln Park Zoo and run by Green City Market.”
Prairie Grass Cafe also will be offering a special local Beet and Carrot Birthday Cake, created in honor of Abby’s birthday. “We are donating 100 percent of the proceeds from the cake sales on the 12th to The Edible Gardens program.”
“I want to help make sure the program that Abby and Jeanne Pinsof Nolan, The Organic Gardener, created and oversees for the market, is fully funded.”
“It reaches so many inner-city children and helps them understand where their food comes from. It’s an interactive garden that the children either plant or harvest depending on the season. It’s free and open to the public,” Stegner said.
