Meeting: The October meeting will be a visit to the Center for Urban Ecology (CUE) Farm at Butler University. The CUE farm is a one-acre sustainable agriculture farm located in Rocky Ripple across the canal from the main Butler campus. The CUE farm grows and sells a variety of seasonal produce grown using organic practices direct to the community through a weekly on-site farm stand, Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, and restaurant and grocer sales. Have tables, no chairs. Bring a chair!
Pitch-in lunch: Bring a favorite dish filled with food (“home-made” and/or “organic” appreciated) to share and your plate, fork, and drink.
Directions: To access the CUE Farm, head west on 52nd Street and into the neighborhood of Rocky Ripple. After crossing the Central Canal, turn left at Lester Street. At the end of the street, continue through the gates onto Bulldog Rd., past the athletic fields and Parking Lot I. The farm is at the end of the road next to the tennis courts and across from the Butler Prairie. Park in the lot by the tennis courts or the large Lot I north of the farm.
Everyone welcome! Questions, or if lost, call Margaret Smith cell phone (317) 698-0526.
Remember to car pool, if possible.
Join us and bring a friend!
