Thanks for the bump! We're still in the early planning phase but getting organized & feeling optimistic!

We're gaining momentum & have lots of fun coming up so join us! Our first yard sale was a great success, we have monthly fundraising workshops and coming soon is a film & discussion series as well as a Harvest Festival this fall. We can do this, western Chicagoland!

Very excited about this!  I live in Elmhurst.  Is there a crunchier vibe in Lombard?

I obviously haven't been on MDC in a while. Oops! I hope some of you were able to make it out to our 1st Annual Harvest Fest last weekend. Great time!

 

Coming up we have a Food for Thought film series at COD, the first one being held on Oct. 1. Come join us!

Today we launched our ownership drive!! After a year and a half of solid work, we're crazy excited to start selling ownership shares. Please spread the word & become a member-owner if you live in the area.
