We are a large network of citizens interested in learning about, doing it and promoting gardening, community gardening and native plantings in the 47th Ward. We sponsor monthly speakers and a forum for the exchange of ideas to inform, enlighten and inspire everyone to be involved in the greening, beautification and conserving the natural resources of the 47th Ward and the city as a whole.

Some of our projects and advocacy, like gardening in the public way, are listed in the Community Gardening page. We hope to find a permanent space for a vegetable garden in the ward but for now we are encouraging the temporary (two seasons) use of vacant lots.
