Angela and Sam Taylor, Fulton Street Flower and Vegetable Garden leaders, made the cover of this Sunday’s Sun-Times. It’s a well-deserved tribute to their terrific, ongoing work in Garfield Park.
NeighborSpace has protected the Fulton Garden site since 2006, providing insurance, water, and other support so that Angela can focus on fulfilling her vision for “a garden on every block.” We couldn’t be prouder of this garden. Check out the full article online, which includes video interviews with the Taylors and many of the neighbors who benefit from their work.
Angela and Sam Taylor used gardening to transform their Fulton Street block into a safe space where vacant lots are used to grow food. They’ve spread their vision of a greener, cleaner community throughout the Garfield Park neighborhood, mentoring teens who are learning how to garden and landscape and starting a farmer’s market where all the food sold is grown in the Garfield Park community.
