News Germinate local genius with ABQ Sprout Have you heard about this grassroots effort to improve the city ? The model works like this: • Folks pay to get into a dinner cooked by a local chef. • During the dinner, people make pitches on how to make Albuquerque a better place. • The diners vote, and the money they paid to attend the event becomes an instant micro-grant for the winner. In Albuquerque it’s called ABQ Sprout , though it’s based on a model that goes by various names in other cities. The first-ever dinner is Saturday, Jan. 28, at the South Valley Multipurpose Center (2008 Larrazolo SW). Admission is $15 to $30 on a sliding scale.
