After class, meet and chat with our party-cipants about gardening to graduate!🌻

This event will have a colorful presentation featuring local educators and guest features from The Cooperation OperationF12 Network, and more. In addition to celebrating we’re giving students nutritional education, institutional connections, and the tools to maintain strong relationships!

Welcome to the kickoff of #lbgc2019 the summer festival for students. #lbgc2019 aka Let’s Build Garden City! 2019 is the ONLY festival with treasure hunts, free classes, cool parties (and more!) that’s ALSO a service learning platform teaching young people how to transform vacant space in their neighborhoods into community gardens. Plus Sign, a former Chicago Public Schools student, launched Let’s Build Garden City! in spring 2018.
