I’m very excited! Wednesday at 7pm I’m doing my “Chicago Victory Gardens: Yesterday and Tomorrow” lecture for the Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society.
When I started lecturing on WW2 Chicago Victory Gardens this spring the “tomorrow” part was a general overview of how to start a community garden a la’ Victory Garden today as they did in the 1940′s. Now that we’ve almost got The Peterson Garden Project installed, the lecture has a whole new twist!
Join us Wednesday… you’ll really be amazed at the story of how Chicago lead the nation in WW2 in urban food production… and how we’re doing it again!
