DIY Herb Gardening & Cocktails

You don’t have to have a lot of outdoor space (or any really) to start your own herb garden! Join us at the World of Whirlpool for a DIY gardening tutorial and cocktail-making demonstration that’s perfect for apartment-dwellers.

Our friends from the Chicago farm The Urban Canopy will lead everyone in planting their own small herb pot that can thrive in a kitchen or on a balcony.  Then our chef will show you how to turn those herbs into a festive summer cocktail. We’ll also be joined by a World of Whirlpool cleaning and washing expert who will share a few tips on getting dirty garden messes out of your clothes, shoes and tools.

Included in this workshop:

  • Hands-on planting activity with The Urban Canopy
  • Planted herb pot to take home
  • Cocktail or mocktail and snacks
  • Chef-led cocktail making demo
  • Printed recipes

More about The Urban Canopy:

Founded in 2011, The Urban Canopy is pioneering the local food cycle to create a more sustainable and equitable food system in Chicago. We are growers, distributors, composters and community members who seek to positively impact our city’s environment, people’s health, and local economy. We strive to make healthy produce accessible to all, reduce the miles fresh food travels, keep food waste out of landfills, and create and maintain local jobs.

To achieve this, we structure our business into 6 “Branches”: Compost Club, Indoor Farm, Outdoor Farm, Local Unified CSA (LUCSA), Farmers Markets, and non-local Distribution and one “twig”: Processing. These branches each work in their own way to change the way our food is grown, distributed, and wasted.
