Horticultural Training and Design Studies-- Saturdays at 10am-1PM or (773) 278-9075

Each week volunteers learn how to plant and tend all the plants in the park's 8000 sq. feet of gardens.  In addition, they learn the basic design concepts that we have employed in creating our award winning gardens.  Many volunteers have worked with us to create exciting gardens at their homes from the concepts and tutoring we provided them while they tended the park's gardens.  Join our veteran garden tenders: Richard Tilley, Denise Browning, Jim Angrabright, Larry Clary, Lara Kastner, Susan Fontana, Allen Blaurock, Petrina Patti, Joyce Coffee, Teddy Varndell, Donna Nelson, Doug Wood and the Park Kids Grow Students.

Come, Garden, Learn, Create!  Bring your Trowel and Gloves!
