Join Fernwood for a day of discovery!
We will begin with a tour of The Roof Crop, an urban farm growing clean, nutrient dense produce, with one clear directive: growing food on roofs. Next, we’ll explore one of the largest and most stunning conservatories in the nation, Garfield Park Conservatory, designed by Jens Jensen. Then discover the gardens of Lawndale with Annamaria León, the Greening, Open Space, Water and Soil (GROWS) Subcommittee Chair for the North Lawndale Community Coordinating Council (NLCCC), an organization dedicated to implementing North Lawndale stakeholder-driven greening initiatives that create resilient communities.
