The Problem

Our wish is that all families who are in need of food pantry assistance can be provided with all of the resources needed to grow organic vegetables at home, giving each family healthy meals and food-security.

Our Plan

We will coordinate volunteers in our area to build 40 gardens for families in need in Chicago's west suburbs. We will build each family a 4'x8' raised-bed garden, fill it with soil and compost, and plant it with the seeds and plants that they select. We will then be available to answer questions and give advice throughout the growing season.
