You are cordially invited to our first-ever farm dinner! Seats are extremely limited.
Sunday, September 18
Howard Street Farm
3669 Howard St., Skokie
5 – 7:30 pm
Join us for an intimate Harvest Dinner on the Farm! We will begin the evening with a champagne reception and passed hors d'oeuvres, then sit down for a family-style dinner with wine and beverages at a table situated right among the crop rows at the Howard Street Farm. Kevin Kelly, Board Member and co-owner of J & L Catering, and his staff will get out their grills and prepare a multi-course dinner right on the farm using produce grown steps away while guests can mingle and tour the farm. After dinner, we'll gather near a campfire for dessert. Seating is extremely limited.
Proceeds from the dinner benefit The Talking Farm's educational programs and farm development projects. The Talking Farm is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. Ticket prices are tax-deductible to the extent allowed under the law.
