We're holding yet another awesome contest! You and a friend can roam among the swanks at Growing Home's 7th annual benefit, which will be held Thursday, June 11 at the Chicago Cultural Center. Growing Home is a nonprofit that provides job training for people of low income through its farm sites on the south side and in suburban Marseilles. Growing Home sells its organic produce through several farmers markets and via CSA memberships.
You will receive two tickets (valued at $250) to the event, which will feature foods by Monogramme Events & Catering, The Balanced Kitchen, vegan chef Tsadakeeyah Emmanuel, Meatloaf Bakery, Nia Mediterranean Tapas, Bistro Campagne, Charlie Trotter's, and Vie Restaurant. Rick Bayless will be giving the keynote address. Good grief! All that culinary promise is overwhelming, right?
So this is where you come in. Because Growing Home is devoted to growing produce that in turn supports community development, you need to show us your dedication to the cause. So we're holding a photo submission contest, where you submit a photo demonstrating your commitment to organic and/or local produce to the GB Drive-Thru Flickr Group. Tag your photo submission "growinghome" and you're all set. We'll be accepting submissions until Sunday, June 7th at noon CDT that shows us your love for produce. One tagged submission per user, please. Bonus points will be awarded for creativity. Aren't they always?
