If you weren’t already planning on coming to tonight’s Movie & Mingle, well now you simply must! Â We’re excited to announce that we’ll be serving tasty vegan bites from The Chicago Diner in addition to craft beer from Lagunitas (and a handful of Upton’s Naturals vegan tamales)! Â This on top of Backyard Botany tours, a rare Chicago screening of A Community of Gardeners, and great opportunities to connect with Chicago’s urban agriculture community — it’s something that you don’t want to miss.
