We participated in an amazing gathering this past weekend, called Connecting Chicago Community Gardeners, called CCCG for short. The gathering brought together gardeners from all around Chicago, to learn, network, and cultivate a strong garden community in Chicago.
We were out at the Fulton Street Community Flower and Vegetable Garden a couple weeks back, and had the great pleasure to interview Angela and Sam Taylor, who have done an amazing job of creating this beautiful and inspiring community garden. They helped to transform what used to be a vacant lot with a few scraggly tomato plants into a thriving oasis of vegetables, flowers, and vibrant color.
Some shots from the urban garden behind WeFarm America‘s office at the Green Exchange building in Chicago. A nice lush garden bursting with juicy organic goodies, ranging from tomatoes & corn, to kale & chard, to eggplants & herbs. Quite an oasis in the middle of the city.
