Chicago Throws A Garden Party

Chicago will be host to the first Urban Gardening Show. The show is aimed specifically at gardeners in city lots and small spaces like, decks and patios. It will be held May 13-21 at Butler Field in Grant Park.

Garden in a City, as the show is called, "is an in-ground show will provide a unique and engaging visitor experience..." I guess that means the displays will hold some of the things that are commonly found in gardens in Chicago like; loose newspapers, empty aluminum cans, condoms and drunk Cubs fans peeing on your lawn at 3 am?
