We are extremely excited to be partnering with the Peterson Garden Project to create the C.A.R. 2018 Bicentennial Garden at Global Garden! We are developing this community garden in honor of Illinois’ 200th birthday with the goal of creating a lasting impact on our great state. Learn more about the Illinois Bicentennial.

This volunteer day will consist of revamping an existing demo garden, including preparing beds for spring planting, removing debris, installing a watering station and more.

The Peterson Garden Project is a Chicago-based nonprofit whose mission is to teach everyone how to grow and cook their own food. The garden will provide for local seniors, refugees, children and other community members in need. All skill levels are welcome!

What to bring

Please wear weather appropriate clothing (layers are ideal) and comfortable shoes. Work gloves, water and snacks will be provided.

Location and Parking

Global Garden is located at Lawrence and Sacramento in the Albany Park neighborhood. There is ample street parking available and the garden is a few short blocks north of the Brown Line “Francisco” CTA stop.
