Centro Communitario Juan Diego

Victory Garden

The Victory Garden in the South Chicago neighborhood is another example of Chicago’s residents deciding to clean up their neighborhood and removing another empty lot eye-sore. The garden is a shady respite to residents of this neighborhood.

Community Exchange Garden

The “garden of hope” in the South Chicago neighborhood went through a period of decline as this Chicago block was overrun by street violence. Eventually, the residents and the Centro Communitario Juan Diego decided to take action and reclaimed their neighborhood, their lives and their garden.
