New member LaManda Joy, President of City Grange, will showcase her business. LaManda teaches people how to grow food and community. She travels around the country teaching, speaking and inspiring people to use food gardening and cooking as a means to greater joy, better nutrition and stronger communities. In April, 2019 she opened the nation’s first education-based garden center called City Grange in Chicago, with planned expansion in Evanston in 2021. LaManda has written a book, “Start a Community Food Garden: The Essential Handbook” which was named one of the top lifestyle books in 2014 by Publisher’s Weekly. The guide provides all the information your community needs to start and maintain a successful community food garden. We will celebrate LaManda’s accomplishments and discuss opportunities to provide support, assistance, opportunities and connections.
