Community Gardening Program

In 2018, after a successful pilot year, we will be continuing our Community Gardening Program, and will be choosing another 5 new organizations to establish or expand a community garden in their chosen area! 

Community garden organizers may apply to receive 5 raised-bed garden frames, seeds, seedlings, and support from The GardenWorks Project. Dig in and apply today!

Join us next week!

Seed Saving and Exchange

Award-Winning Organic Gardener Vicki Nowicki will be presenting a talk on seed saving and permaculture at The GardenWorks Project Resource Center in West Chicago on Wednesday, February 7th at 7:00pm. 

After the talk, join us along with fellow gardeners at our resource center to exchange seeds that have been saved from individual gardens. The event will be a casual setting and no rules about how seeds should be packaged. If you have seeds organized in large quantities, we will have some envelopes for others to take just a few.

As always, thank you for being part of our mission to support organic gardening in DuPage to increase the availability of locally-grown foods for all.
