This year’s theme, “Connections through Gardening: Plants, People and the Environment,” aims to explore and celebrate the interconnectedness of our shared garden work and to foster relationships and conversations that shape and support best practices for sustainable living and growing in Chicago.
Community gardens are increasingly seen as a viable means of promoting restoration, transformation, and conservation of often abandoned or under used property in the city. They have become a powerful tool for promoting good nutrition, physical activity, environmental stewardship, and social connections.
As our primary educational event, your support of the 8th Annual Conference will directly aid CCGA’s mission to “grow” new gardeners and increase the stewardship of open space. Your support means more now than ever, as community gardens have served as a refuge and vital resource for food as Covid-19 has ravaged our city.
