A last-minute change by Weiss Memorial Hospital has necessitated a slight modificationÂ to our plans for Thursday’s Rooftop Movie & Mingle Night. Â Don’t worry, there will still be tours of the hospital’s spectacular rooftop farm, and we’ll still be treated to the documentary Tierralismo, a talk with Growing HomeÂ Executive Director (and AUA Steering Committee Co-Chair) Harry Rhodes about his visit to Cuba’s urban agriculture projects, and delicious snacks, beverages and craft beer from a host of local businesses (see below for more details)!
What’s changedÂ is the venue for the film screening, talk and service of beer: We’ll now be starting and ending the evening at the extra-awesome Institute of Cultural AffairsÂ (4750 N. Sheridan), which has its own exciting urban ag and sustainability projects that we’ll also have the opportunity to check out and learn about! Â So, if anything, the event has even more to offer than before!
