11AM: Rogers Park - NeighborFood Fest - Sponsored by Illinois Stewardship Alliance, GeneWise, and Warren Park.
Visiting Version projects: Version booth, Version Network Repository, Bikecart Infoshop And Open-Air Public Reading Room, Quimbys Zine Mobile
NeighborFood Fest is a collaboration of GeneWise, an anti-biotechnology
grassroots community organization, and the largest organic/sustainable ag family farming membership organization in Illinois, the Illinoisstewardship Alliance, as well as many groups and organizations and businesses in the Rogers Park Neighborhood in Chicago. The event will, by the collaboration and interaction of these groups, enjoin the public to become a part of a tangible network of resources and information about food and community. This is a resistant network of living interactions, at the edge of the intangible networks of corporate power that GeneWise seeks to denconstruct as individuals and as a group.
8AM-10AM Walkathon Registration
10AM-3PM Neighborhood Fair with exhibits, speakers, local and regional speciality vendors, music, entertainment. NeighborFood Feast in the Park: prepared by the Heartland Café featuring all-organic vegan, vegetarian meals and desserts, as well as organic meat barbecue.
