For the past two years, the vacant lot at the southwest corner of Kedzie and Crystal has been used as a community garden by a local group. This year the garden space has opened up and a neighbor has approached the landlord about continuing to use it as a garden, so there is an opportunity for HP residents to get involved and possibly reserve some gardening space on this plot. Anyone interested should be willing to contribute to maintaining the entire garden and the surrounding parkways, as well as their own garden area.
This is an excellent opportunity to get involved in the neighborhood and meet your neighbors, as well as grow some veggies, flowers, or herbs. If you'd like to find out more, please send an email.
