The Get Growing Foundation and the Chicago Flower & Garden Show are teaming up with 811 Chicago (CDOT), the Chicago Department of Planning & Development and members of the Greater Chicago Damage Prevention Council to create an inspiring gardening presentation during the 2018 Taste of Chicago.
Located within a ”Farm-to-Festival” addition to the Taste of Chicago visitors will be greeted by educational gardening vignettes featuring messaging on safe digging, pollinators, urban agriculture and more. Educational workshops, locator demonstrations and seminars by industry professionals will be incorporated into the educational garden area.
The mission of Get Growing Foundation is to raise awareness of, and funds for, educational programs to educate the public, especially its youth, to be conducted in connection with the annual Chicago Flower & Garden Show.
Taste of Chicago is the nation’s premier outdoor food festival showcasing the diversity of Chicago’s dining community. The delicious array of food served at Taste of Chicago is complemented by music and exciting activities for the entire family. Every summer since 1980, Chicago’s beautiful Grant Park on the city’s magnificent lakefront has been home to the world’s largest food festival.
ADMISSION TO THE TASTE OF CHICAGO IS FREE!
