Feature Friday: Grow Greater Englewood

Join the UCSC this Spring Quarter for our Feature Fridays conversations on Chicago’s environmental sustainability landscape, with a special emphasis on food access and justice. Each week, we’ll feature community leaders from our network of partners who will help us understand the past, present, and future of food access and food deserts in Chicago, learn how community-led efforts in urban agriculture, conservation, and food education are addressing these challenges, and share the ways you can get involved and take action.

This week, we’re excited to welcome Adonnis Platt from Grow Greater Englewood to share about their recently annouced Englewood Nature Trail, efforts in creating social enterprise, sustainable food markets. You can learn more about their work, and their Englewood Farmers Market on their website.

A light lunch will be provided, and your RSVP helps us plan.
