A few events, partners and commitments to announce:
I’ll be presenting this project as part of the Jane Addams Hull House Museum’s Rethinking Soup program on June 29.  Consider it a project kickoff event, as it will be happening just before I pick up the actual wheat.  I’ve also been talking to the folks at the Hull House about collaborating on other programs and events, too, so stay tuned!

Industrial Harvest will be in a group show at Roots & Culture contemporary art center, curated by Mike Wolf (opening Sat. Aug 7). 

I’ll be working with the folks at the Prairie Crossing Learning Farm to incorporate this project into programs they’ve got going with 2 nearby schools. 

The Greater Chicago Food Depository is going to be accepting a few large donations of flour from the project; they’ll distribute it to their member food banks and soup kitchens, and also use it in their culinary programs.

A huge thanks to the people at these organizations for jumping in early with lots of enthusiasm.  I’ve also been having great (but inconclusive as of yet) conversations with other lots of other people / organizations and will announce them here as they get firmed up (Cathie B, we need to talk specifics!).  If this gives you any ideas for people / organizations that I should be working with, get in touch with me:  sarah “at” industrialharvest “dot” com.  Looking forward to posting more on this soon…
