Hello Gardeners! We are so excited to be back for our 11th year at the garden! We want to lovingly nourish our plot and soil and are wondering if anyone in the garden has a tiller we could borrow tomorrow and/or Sunday? Or if anyone might be interested in sharing a rental? THANK YOU and we look forward to seeing you at the garden this summer....
Get Involved! If you're a gardener👩🏾‍🌾, collector of houseplants🪴, Culinarian/foodie👩🏽‍🍳, etc. Join this fun new group. There will be a myriad of resourceful topics. C'mon in and look around, get involved. Thank you 😊https://www.facebook.com/groups/487398468910487/

Please spread the word to those who are interested in community composting in public spaces in Chicago. This event is not about composting at home, but addresses the effect of the new Chicago city composting ordinance on community composting efforts.
Hello gardeners! I have a rooftop garden box that I'm converting over to straw bales, and have a bunch of dirt available for the taking. I'm a couple of blocks north on Western from the community garden. Anyone interested in some free dirt? You'd have to bring containers to carry it downstairs. I have been gardening mostly organically for a few years now - no herbicides or pesticides ever. Cheers!
