A Neighborspace garden in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood
El Paseo Community Garden is one of many Neighborspace protected and community managed spaces, maintained by volunteers. The garden sits along the public path and maintains the area between West 21st Street and West Cullerton Street. The area includes native praire restoration and monarch sancturary, permaculture food forest, raised beds for allotment and collective gardening, picninc areas, outdoor classroom, and many seating areas. The garden serves as a public green space for the neighborhood, especially for the neighbors in the adjacent senior living and affordable housing apartments.
Your donation will help support maintainence of the space and help facilitate many free community events and programs, including: Weekly Bee Informed, Weekly Kids Garden Days, Garden Program for Seniors, Weekly Yoga, Weekly Meditation, Stewardship Days, Gardening workshops, Community Potlucks, Annual Harvest Festival, and Annual Halloween Haunted Garden.
Our goal is to Empower through Nature.

Though your donation will be earmarked for use only by El Paseo, it will show up on your bank or credit card statement as a charge to NeighborSpace, the nonprofit land trust that protects El Paseo and over 100 other community gardens across Chicago. It is through NeighborSpace's non-profit status and fiscal agency that El Paseo will be able to use your tax-deductible donation.
ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN CREATOR
NeighborSpace is the only nonprofit urban land trust in Chicago that preserves and sustains gardens on behalf of dedicated community groups. We shoulder the responsibilities of property ownership — such as providing basic insurance, access to water, and links to support networks — so that community groups can focus on gardening. NeighborSpace-protected gardens give young and old alike an opportunity to get their hands in the earth and enjoy nature, right in their own neighborhoods.
