Join us for a walk down Brooke Rd to Kishwaukee, through the neighborhoods up to Harrison, and back down 11th Street as we learn the history of the area, celebrate beauty, and look for opportunity. After an hour-long walk, we'll gather at the church for a presentation on our community garden with Q&A by a master gardener and a free chili lunch. You can pick up free seeds and plants, learn how to soil prep and compost, check out our raised garden beds and rain barrels, and sign up for space in the garden.
