Which ones are yours?

By Erika Abad, Puerto Rican Cultural Center Garden Team


This weekend, as many gathered in parks and prepared to go to the lake, the PRCC's Farmers' Market remained open. Getting ready for the grill, garlic flew off the shelves and the last of our strawberries were a delight to those who, after one bite, bought what we were able to harvest this week. On Sunday, one of our garden team members learned more about how to cook beets from a resident debating with another on the best way to cook them and the differences between the red and orange varieties. On getting a whiff of sofrito, community residents braved investment in the Puerto Rican cooking paste with others, preordering for next week and assuring us they will remind their friends.

Community residents, when aiming to buy local, remember Conuco and Mural Farmer's Market- food from your neighborhood getting to your table!

For more information on what is in season this week, reach Garden Team Member Erika at erikaa@prcc-chgo.org or (773) 850-2467.

This Sunday, one of the Farmers' Market regulars asked a garden team member, which ones  we grew. After pointing to the cilantro, remaining beets and lettuce heads, he took the bulk of the beets before moving on to pick from other produce. Support for neighborhood- grown food is about using bring food as close to you as possible. Healthy communities are about having healthy choices right around the corner.


Another regular, in comparing Mural Garden Market with Logan Square, said she appreciated having great produce right across the street from her home. Whether greeting neighbors with a good morning or "buen dia", the Farmers' Market team privileges being able to work on growing the food local residents request and encouraging healthier alternatives.


Each weekend the Garden Team brings over 180 lbs of produce and herbs right into the neighborhood. With continued regulars and greater supporters, the Garden Team will work to bring more diverse choices to residents looking to eat healthier, decrease their carbon footprint and support efforts.


Please call or email Erika, erikaa@prcc-chgo.org or 773-850 2467 for more information on how you can help or how you can bring the food you grow right into our market.

15th Barrio Arts Fest at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture

By Bianca Ortiz-Declet, National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture

The 15th Edition of Barrio Arts Fest is a historical one; it commemorates the opening of the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture after an extensive reconstruction of the former establishment of the Humboldt Park Stables that lasted over a decade. Now the historic building that housed through its transition the Institute of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture (IPRAC) rejoiced once again with its signature arts festival Barrio Arts Fest during the weekend of July 11 & 12, 2015.


The museum had a vast variety of artists/ vendors and new artists presenting their artwork at the courtyard. There were performances by AfriCaribe who delighted the public as always with their master skills of bomba and the public danced to the live performances by Conjunto FUACATA. As part of their educational programming, the museum offered a wonderful Family Mural Workshop with the visiting Puerto Rican artist Edgardo Larregui, where the kids and grownups could be part of the making of the iconic Puerto Rican images. The visitors can appreciate the new murals on the entrance of the museum right on W Division Street. Stay tuned for the next Barrio Arts Fest 2016! It is going to be quite a celebration!

Rep. Nydia Velázquez: Freedom for Oscar López Rivera Unites Puerto Ricans Across Political Lines
By Democracy Now!
 - Thousands of people gathered in New York City last month for a march calling on President Obama to release a longtime Puerto Rican independence activist from prison. Oscar López Rivera was convicted in 1981 on federal charges, including seditious conspiracy - conspiring to oppose U.S. authority over Puerto Rico by force. He was also accused of being a member of the FALN, the Armed Forces of National Liberation, which claimed responsibility for more than 100 bombings to call attention to the colonial case of Puerto Rico. In 1999, President Bill Clinton commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, but López refused to accept the deal because it did not include two fellow activists who have since been released. 2015 marks López's 34th year behind bars. He is scheduled for release in 2027. We discuss López's case with Congressmember Nydia Velázquez, Democrat for New York and the first Puerto Rican woman to be elected to Congress.
