The North Lawndale Greening Committee Annual Garden Tour is on August 7, 2010. The tour starts at 10:00 AM at the Douglass Park Library and winds through Chicago’s west side featuring private home gardens, community gardens, urban greening projects and a bee farm.
Don’t miss your opportunity to see some of the great things this group of urban greening and community gardening pioneers have accomplished on City lots.
In between touring gardens there’s a potluck lunch and you’re encouraged to bring a dish to share with attendees.
Below, a list of the gardens highlighted on the tour, a PDF schedule and description of each garden, and a video that follows the North Lawndale Greening Community during a previous garden tour.
