In neighborhoods all over Chicago, community gardens bring people together. They offer beauty and respite, preserve foodways, support well-being and social cohesion, and facilitate neighborhood self-sufficiency. As part of our Neighborhood Initiative, CHF and community-based partner organizations on the South Side co-create a morning of conversation and exploration in and around the historic Rainbow Beach Victory Garden. A panel of urban agriculture leaders will discuss the importance of community gardening on the South Side, and local partners will offer hands-on engagement with the surroundings—including tours, demonstrations, scavenger hunts, and more! This program is part of CHF's Neighborhood Initiative.
