The Alliance Summer Shindig in Chicago was a joy

Fun in the Sun on the Southside

On Saturday, 30 Alliance members celebrated our big wins at our third Summer Shindig at Urban Growers Collective in Chicago. 

You can join us at one more Summer Shindig in Southern Illinois on Sunday, September 19th.

UGC was such a welcoming host this weekend on their beautiful urban farm on the Southside.

We enjoyed great local food from Majani’s Restaurant and enjoyed fellowship in real life with the friends and neighbors who collectively took action together to pass six state initiatives that help build the health and wealth of Illinois.

Congressman Bobby Rush also sent a special video message celebrating the success. He serves on the House Agriculture Committee, and we are excited to work more closely with him on the upcoming Farm Bill.

Building relationships and celebrating our wins together is how we build collective power to create change. And we’ve got big plans next year to tackle climate change, livestock processing bottleneck, soil health, and local food infrastructure.

Your last chance to experience a Summer Shindig will be at All Seasons Farm in Cobden on Sunday, September 19th.

You’ll enjoy the fields of late summer produce, fellowship with Alliance supporters, and delicious local food from the Neighborhood Co-op in Carbondale.

Finally, we regret to inform you that our Shindig in Champaign has been canceled. You can enjoy great local food and visit our friends at Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery by joining one of their upcoming farm dinners.
