If you’re in the holiday spirit of giving, why not consider donating a few dollars to some organizations in Chicago who make urban and community gardening possible, transform communities, and feed the less fortunate?
In no particular order:
NeighborSpace: Chicago’s land-trust for community gardening.
Let’s Go Chicago: Leading the energy transition, sprouting green opportunities in Chicago.
North Lawndale Greening Committee: Urban beautification through gardening.
Su Casa Catholic Worker: Home to an urban garden where produce for their soup kitchen is grown.
Growing Home: Social enterprise providing transitional jobs through urban farming.
Give ’til it hurts.
