Great Volunteer Opportunity: Alice Waters: Edible School Yard

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Good morning Master Gardeners,

On Saturday, October 6, Alice Waters of the Edible School Yard fame will be visiting the Green City Market and the Lincoln Park Zoo Edible Garden. Ms Waters will visit the garden from 10:30 until 11:20 a.m.

Jeanne Pinsof really needs some help for this event. She would like to have both the small and large garden open for this visit. If you can help out at the Lincoln Park Zoo Vegetable Garden from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 6, please contact Elizabeth ebruhns@uiuc.edu or call 773-469-8037.

We cannot guarantee that you will have time for a conversation with Ms Waters, but you will get to meet her. We think this will be of special interest to Master School Gardeners and the Crew of Lincoln Park Zoo Garden, but any Master Gardener may apply. I'll accept the first four who apply.

Thanks, Elizabeth
