Triton College’s Green Drinks Series will feature Michael Howard with the theme, “Reconnecting Urban Audiences to the Land: Lessons from an Urban Agriculture Program,” from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 8. Michael founded Eden Place Nature Center and Urban Farm by cleaning up an illegal dumpsite, with help from family and friends, in his Fuller Park neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. This urban oasis now educates youth and their families about environmental stewardship via wetland, prairie and woodland. Learn more here. The Green Drinks Series is a free, public event with a cash bar, snacks, and plenty of time for networking. Location is Triton College Student Center, Room B-223, 2000 Fifth Ave., in River Grove.
