Get city officials and the alderman to allow the vacant lot across from my house to become a Community Garden. This pasture of land has been vacant for years! It's just Grass and growth that Jackson Park keeps cutting and spraying with pesticides. Building this garden raises the self-esteem of the inhabitants in this community, our children come first.

If We can start the Rehabilitation of this useful piece of land, we can begin the important work of feeding a community with fresh produce.  We would be able to provide local businesses with fresh produce; therefore, making the community as a whole healthier and more vibrant. A healthy body is a healthy mind, and Eating Healthy is a major part of the healing South Shore needs. Within one square mile, the city manages to keep Popeyes, White Castle, KFC, Church's Chicken, Harold's, and Wings and fins practically on the same block. I mean where is the Green?! The nearest grocery store is a jewel whose mostly inorganic produce comes from miles outside the city. We could grow our own produce in these vacant lots that the city does nothing with. Why should Hyde Park be the nearest place with a Farmer's market?

Jackson park pays the same guy to cut the grass, but what if we paid him to water the future harvests of spring? Let's bring productivity to our community!  If the neighborhood was gentrified the city would be quick to pay attention to the health of the people; However, being a predominantly Black community they are complacent with serving us Slop. Unacceptable. Share this Grassroots petition to pressure the Alderman, City officials, and Jackson Park Hospital to help the community thrive with a community garden.
