Description

Tour of 7 Urban Farms

We will tour 7 Urban Farms including The Plant and Growing Power.  Most of these are free, but there are two fees involved so bring cash if you plan to go inside.  You are welcome to wait outside while others take the tours.  We ride through some neighborhoods I wouldn't visit alone and there are the usual number of Chicago potholes.  So bring a sturdy bike, a patch kit or spare tube and whatever else you need to feel equipped.  

There will be food for sale at the Plant - but if you expect to get hungry sooner than 2PM please carry some food for yourself.

Suzy sure did like the roof! Once she got past the stairs that is :). I took a ton of photos and am going to post them chainlink.

There are some gaps in my notes from the tour at The Plant, and I would love to get in touch with the shrimp farmer who gave us the tour so I can ask her some follow up questions. Does anyone remember her name? Thanks so much!

thanks for reminding me to send you the photos.  I haven't done any photos since that date.  Just printed yours and passed them on to my contact at the location.  She got a big kick out of Suzy on the roof.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank every one on the ride for sharing the experience with me. I enjoyed meeting you and sharing conversation about urban agriculture and your lives. I am especially grateful for the mechanical help, and definitely owe some beers (or other beverages of your choice :). I am further grateful for you contributions to my thesis assignment. I am going to be writing about our ride and the tours so I would really appreciate if all of you would message or email me with your full names or at least first names and last initial, so that I can be sure spell them correctly in my thesis and the write up I am doing for Kathy. I would also love copies of any photos you took during the tour  Thanks again everyone!

Kathy - Shirlee here, we chatted at the Polish Triangle Pit Stop yesterday. Anyways, I mentioned I was interested in your ride. I have a wedding to go to on Saturday, and when we spoke I thought it was an evening wedding. Just checked the invitation and it's at 10 am, so I won't be able to go. Thanks for the invite, though - hope you all have a great time.

When the ride is over, can you update add a comment with all the locations on your route. I'd love to check it out on my own some time.

Kathy, this event is listed for today and was posted well after the posted start time!  A mistake as to the date, right?  It sounds like a great ride that I would love to join if it is a time that I can make it.
