A tour sponsored by the Greater Englewood Garden Association, Chicago, IL, July 17, 2010

slide2

“We must knit together this energy and end this food desert.”

Cordia Pugh, Greater Englewood Garden Association

slide4

Eloise Baskin started gardening in her backyard and eventually expanded to two vacant lots next to her house. The lots became Morgan Way of Peace Garden, which includes a hoop house so residents can grow vegetables year round.

slide5

Holy Angels Church Garden, 5929 S. Winchester, is built on the foundation of a

demolished building. The neighborhood, including youth, came together to create

the garden, which helps to beautify a street that has several vacant lots.

slide12

Nicholson School Garden, 6006 S. Peoria, was organized by Jean Carter-Hill of Imagine Englewood. The garden is behind the school on land owned by Chicago Public Schools. She wants the garden to become a teaching tool for children.

slide20

Cordia Pugh has a backyard garden and has helped other residents learn to garden as a way to build community, create jobs and businesses and put vacant lots into productive use.

slide21

Cordia Pugh gardens in her backyard and encourages others in Englewood to garden

as a way to build community, create jobs and businesses and reconnect with their

Southern agricultural heritage.

slide23

Greater Englewood Garden Association is a coalition of residents and

local organizations who meet monthly to share garden information and

knowledge. For more information, call or email Julie at
