Jeanne Nolan Author Talk

Join us on Tuesday, October 22, at 7:00 p.m. to meet Glencoe resident Jeanne Nolan, the author of From the Ground Up: A Food Grower’s Education in Life, Love and the Movement That’s Changing the Nation - an engaging blend of how-to, manifesto and memoir. Published in July, her book chronicles her journey back to the North Shore after 17 years of living on a communal farm. The founder of The Organic Gardener Ltd., Ms. Nolan has designed and cultivated more than 650 farms and food gardens in and around Chicago, including the Edible Gardens - a 5,000 square foot vegetable garden for children in Lincoln Park Zoo - and gardens at Glencoe’s Central and South Schools. Copies of her book, which features a foreword by Alice Waters, will be available for purchase courtesy of Books on Vernon.
