Chicago has been vigilant in the face of Covid-19. In these challenging times community gardens have emerged as mighty neighborhood places where communities grow food and safely come together outdoors.
To help gardens meet the increased demand of the pandemic NeighborSpace, Chicago’s land trust for community gardens, will build or repair 100 raised garden beds before the start of the 2021 growing season. This will help Chicago’s communities grow even more food, so that when springtime comes our communities are more resilient.

We need $15,000 to meet our goal. With your support we will build garden beds in Austin, Back of the Yards, Humboldt Park, West Pullman and throughout Chicago.
NeighborSpace is the only nonprofit land trust in Chicago that preserves and sustains gardens on behalf of dedicated community groups. We support community gardens – through property ownership, insurance, water, stewardship, education, tool lending, project planning, fundraising support, troubleshooting and more – so that community groups can focus on gardening and on their community building vision, generating food, beauty, play, health and safety for their neighborhoods.
