Community Gardening in the 47th Ward

Please join as we continue to plant the seeds for the future of Community Gardening in the 47th Ward.  There is nothing that’s more fun than being in the company of kindred spirits who love to garden.  We will learn so much – from each other, in our workshops and during our outings.

Last year we visited the American Indian Center’s native gardens, Water’s Community Garden and Gethsemane Green House and held workshops on Corner Gardening, Seed Gathering, Caring for City Trees, Planting with Native Plants, Houseplants and other timely topics.

Gardening March 2013Whether you are currently gardening, need help or not or perhaps you have never gardened and would like to but don’t have space or if you are just interested in all that is green – wherever you’re at – we want YOU!  We will continue our search throughout the ward for additional space for community gardens.

We will have forms for rebates on Trees, Rain Barrels, Native Plants and Compost Bins; all of which are important to the well-being of the neighborhood – at our meetings.

Please bring your thoughts, suggestions and friends to our next Community Gardening Meeting on Thursday March 14 at 6:30pm at Sulzer Library.


Forward Chicago, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, envisions our neighborhoods as model communities for people of all ages, where residents can age in place while remaining active, engaged and influential.
