You can't get in touch with your Midwestern roots without doing a little digging. With today's deal, give a nod to our agricultural past and see the future of farming when you pay $10 for two tour tickets to the Iron Street Urban Farm from Growing Power (a $20 value). Tours run Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1 p.m. as well as Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Situated riverside in Bridgeport, this working non-profit farm spreads across seven acres of reclaimed industrial space and contains six green houses, an apiary with beehives, composting systems, and more. Learn how this sustainable farm, which Michelle Obama visited last year, grows food year round, produces healthy soil from nutrient-rich compost, and works to introduce a greener lifestyle to the urban context. With informative guides and chances for hands-on learning, this tour will make urban farming really grow on you.
