The Howard Street Farm was born a year ago with a land use agreement signed by The Talking Farm, a local non-profit, and the Skokie Park District to use 2.25 acres of land on Howard Street at the North Shore Channel.
Now, one year later, The Talking Farm is unveiling its Demonstration Garden and hosting a Birthday Bash at the Farm, located behind the Tot Learning Center at 3701 Howard St. in Skokie.
From 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, volunteers will help build and plant display beds in our demonstration garden.
From 6 to10 p.m., there'll be a picnic party with music, birthday cake, beverages, campfires for s’mores and self-guided tours. Bring your own picnic foods, blankets, chairs, friends, and family!
The suggestion donation is $5. All proceeds benefit The Talking Farm and its projects.
