Prequal is hosting this informative and fun event as a fundraiser for Gardeneers. Gardeneers is an Illinois not-for-profit organization that works with Chicago’s South and West Side schools and communities to contribute positively to the larger food system. They do this by supporting youth in school garden and farm programs to build knowledge, skills, and habits to become leaders who care for themselves, their environment, and their communities.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to Gardeneers to continue their mission of creating a world where every human has access to fresh, nourishing food and all neighborhoods are healthy and sustainable. Thank you for your donation and support.
