Greater Englewood Community Gardens

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


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

Cordia Pugh, Greater Englewood Garden Association


Morgan Way of Peace Community Garden, 6509 S. Morgan


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.


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.

Mount Hope Missionary Baptist Church, 6034 S. Princeton, has a food garden.


Blackberries are among the food grown in cedar wood boxes behind the church.
