In September we opened the Lawndale Triangle Garden, the only open space for a neighborhood-within-a-neighborhood which for decades has been isolated from surrounding areas by industrial zones and wide roads. This multi-generational garden provides a place for nature play, fitness, healthy living, vegetable growing, and interaction with nature.
We sponsored successful community compost trainings (joined by Social Ecologies) in Humboldt Park and Little Village. In 2017, we will hold three more neighborhood networking events in Englewood, South Shore, and Rogers Park, bringing nearby community gardens to learn new skills together.
The 71st and Crandon Organic Garden took root this year, growing out of participatory budgeting in the 5th Ward and joining the South Merrill Community Garden as part of a gardening resurgence in South Shore.
Widening the scope of what can happen at an outdoor community site, a teen cast performed “Jacklyn and the Bean Stalk” at Uptown’s Winthrop Harmony Arts Garden.
