The garden was started by three long-time residents of the West Humboldt Park community. They wanted to improve the safety and education for the children in the neighborhood.
It was created to be a place where children can learn gardening skills and come together as part of the community to appreciate the beauty of growing things. They will be able to carry these skills with them for the rest of their lives. Bettina Savage is the local garden leader, but there are several neighbors, young and old, that garden. Nobel Neighbors partners with the garden and the garden is part of Growing Pride. There are several raised beds in the garden with perennials and vegetables.
