Gardening

Coming Events

is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.

We are also providing funds for the school gardening programs at Waters and Kilmer schools. The Kilmer School Project is sponsored by Big Green Chicago, an organization building learning gardens in Chicago Public Schools and creating the single largest school garden network in a US city.

We Honor our 2018 Volunteers

In January, we hosted a dinner to honor our many volunteers who help with all of our community service and programming activities. We couldn't do it without them. Eva Mannaberg was presented with a plant for her excellent leadership throughout the year.
