    What we're about

    Looking to promote the work of the Chicago Park District Organic Gardens as well as community gardens. The Kilbourn Garden grows organic vegetables from seed and sells their plants at a huge garden sale in late spring. It also provides summer mini classes for young children to promote healthy eating and cooking as well. Volunteers work to plant the thousand organic seeds and nurture them for the sale in the Green House garden. Some master gardeners work full time at the garden as well. Tours are planned throughout summer of community inspired gardens as well as mini classes to help new gardeners get started as well. Cooking classes using the produce grown on the property happens several time during the year as well.
