Hear from North Lawndale residents about the positive impact more than 50 community gardens are making in their West Side neighborhood.
Discover the stories behind empty North Lawndale lots that have become beautiful havens for residents to share gardening skills and gather outdoors for peace circles, storytelling, art and music events, and outdoor recess. This discussion will highlight nine of the more than 50 community gardens in the neighborhood and examine how they are steering North Lawndale toward a safer, more sustainable future.
Community members will share their experiences working in the gardens as well as the impact of the gardens on the North Lawndale community.
