Let's Build Garden City!

This is a petition to show support for Let's Build Garden City!, a service learning platform teaching students and members of the community how to transform vacant spaces in their neighborhoods into community gardens. Plus Sign, a former Chicago Public Schools student, launched the platform in spring 2018.

The first LBGC! program of the year will be October 28th at the Museum of Contemporary Art. This event will have a colorful presentation featuring local educators and guest speakers from Advocates for Urban Agriculture (auachicago.org), Grow-Op Chicago (patreon.com/growopchicago), and more. In addition to nutritional education and institutional connections, LBGC! gives young people the tools to maintain strong community relationships as they grow their service learning projects.

After the workshop, meet and chat with participants about bringing LBGC! to your school!
