Please join friends and neighbors at one of 3 garden parties to learn more about The Sugar Beet Co-op! The Sugar Beet Co-op will be a full-service, member-owned grocery store in Oak Park that celebrates local, sustainably grown foods. They are deep into their membership drive and are eager to share their story with like-minded neighbors to gain support and gather opinions from the community. Co-founder Cheryl Muñoz will tell the inspiring story of this project and all of the ways in which a food co-op can benefit the health and well being of our community and beyond. Learn more at the Sugar Beet Co-op website at www.sugarbeetcoop.com

...and win a basket of fresh organic veggies. Join us for an afternoon of grass-roots inspiration, refreshments and friendship. Guests also have a chance to win a basket of vegetables harvested fresh from our garden later this summer. The garden is a collaborative effort by three Green Community Connections volunteers – Estelle Carol, Cassandra West and Marni Curtis. It has 9 raised beds of vegetables intermingled between decorative plants. It has 3 large compost bins and 4 rain barrels. See garden photos below.
