A BIG Thank you to Jan and Mimi for planning a truly festive, entertaining, and delicious luncheon at the Shore Acres Country Club in Lake Bluff. We were also charmed by sunny and enthusiastic  Katie Ford, who demonstrated making three very beautiful and festive holiday floral arrangements. Our time was capped by a lively auction conducted by Sylvia and our raffle winners. A good time was had by all.

Our Visit to Metropolitan Farms

Members visited Metropolitan FarmIMG_9673 2s, an URBAN AQUAPONICS FARM located in Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood. Lucky for us, we had an “in” with the CEO, Ben Kant, son of Member Liese Kant. We learned how Metro Farms raises a variety of lettuces and tilapia in an environment free of pesticides and chemicals. The result? Farm-fresh food, free of harmful substances, available for a great price to local restaurants and farmers’ markets immediately after harvest. Checkout Ben’s website to learn more about how aquaponics works.

Thank you, Ben and Liese, and thank you to our wonderful program chairs for another entertaining and informative outing. 


A Trip to the Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Factory

Vanilla comes from the orchid plant…in case you were wondering why garden club members would plan a visit to a vanilla factory!
