Urban Growers Collective “Follow the Drinking Gourd” Gala
September 19, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Urban Growers Collective (UGC), a leading nonprofit organization in urban agriculture and food policy in Chicago, will host its annual gala to support educational programs, partnerships and the organization’s overall mission to positively impact Chicago’s resource deprived neighborhoods on Chicago’s South and West Side communities.
Several local Chicago restaurants and breweries in support of UGC that will have featured items on the menu include Bang Bang Pies, Revolution Brewing Co., Daisies, Hart Davis Hart Wine Co., and Fig Catering, along with tastings of tea, honey, heirloom tomatoes and culinary salts by UGC’s very own Youth Corps. Festivities for the evening include a chef demonstration, keynote speaker and tasting stations.
