We want to help relieve the financial barriers to starting community gardens. In February, 2017, we opened applications for support groups who wish to start or expand their community garden in DuPage County. To be eligible, a portion of what is grown in the garden must be donated to a DuPage area food pantry.
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. For more information please email [email protected].
