Greetings fellow NACE members and enthusiasts!


As Spring slowly unfurls, we're delighted to announce The Chicago Botanic Garden will be hosting our May meeting:


Tuesday morning May 6th, 8:00-10:30 AM.


We'll enjoy a delectable breakfast in the Regenstein Center, as we learn about the Garden and the various food & horticultural-focused organizations that the Garden services and partners with.

Laura Erickson of Windy City Harvest Youth Farm will be speaking about their partnership with the Chicago Botanic Garden. We'll learn about how Windy City Harvest's produce is used for the CBG's catered events, as well as their mission to teach urban children about agriculture and farming.
