About the Garden:
Belmont Cragin Garden is committed to harnessing the skills and talents of neighborhood residents to build a common space where we, as a community, can learn and grow from one another. Our goal is to have our garden act as a space where local schools, teachers, mentors, and families can learn to grow healthy food, learn of the ground and environment, socialize, partake in educational workshops, health and exercise classes, enjoy fun events and interactive activities for the entire family.
Founded in 2018, our garden is in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood, which is predominantly working-class Latinx families. It is a beautiful gen, located near our local shopping plaza.
Recently, we added a tiny library and envision adding a permanent food pantry. We also anticipate paths for exploration, seating areas for contemplation, a nature play site, sculptures and much more!
