Chicago is a great big city full of millions of people that is known for its neighborhoods and sense of community. From the Mayor and the awesome park district (which includes the conservatories and six nature centers) to business leaders and the University Agricultural extension service, there is enormous support for the many community gardens, network of green groups , and each year more individuals, growing food and utilizing the outdoor areas of our homes and the city. All year round there are learning opportunities through lectures and actual hands on experience.
Today a group of volunteers helped unload and group a truckload of shrubs and perennials that will be given away on Saturday to the 93 community gardens that have registered to receive plants. All the plants are free, donated by local nurseries, the Chicago Botanic Garden and others.
There is more to the green movement than lakefront parks and median planters.
