The Chatham Urban Garden Takes Shape

Location: 8247 South King Drive, Chicago, IL 60619, USA
Earlier this year, the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council (CAPCC)
in conjunction with Center for Regenerative Truth (CRT)organization held a fundraiser to fund the startup cost of the Chatham "The Color Green" Urban Garden. The garden sits on two lots on 82nd King Drive owned by CAPCC. The plan is teach urban farming to youth and veterans.

Previously, CAPCC planned to build a community center at this site and adjacent lots but funding and acquisition of lots for this project was difficult and has been put on hold.

What do you think?
