City Is A Community Garden Exhibit, is an exhibit that examins Chicago's community gardens, urban gardens, vertical farms, living walls and urban chicken keepers. The exhibit uses photos architectural drawings and installations to highlight garden and sustainable projects in Chicago. These pictures were taken before the exhibit was completed so it may look different when you visit. My favorite part of the exhibit is the green roof where plants are used to create the image of the smiling child. The garden structures used as seating and gathering space by community gardens are really neat and look like something you can use to create seating in your garden. In conjunction with the exhibit, there are also tours of NeighborSpace community gardens on June 26, July 31, and August 28. Tickets for the tours are free but donations would be accepted. Sign up Here. City Is A Community Garden exhibit runs through September 19, 2010 and is located in the Chicago Tourism Gallery at 72 E. Randolph St across from the Chicago Cultural Center and just a couple of doors down from Chicago's Downtown Farmstand.
