Vacant lots have potential. 

Four years ago when the international institute asked us if we had space for a garden, we said YES! And that embarked on a fun journey of building a small and mighty garden on the West Side. We partner each year with a student to give an internship and help teach kids in the neighborhood about healthy food and where it comes from. 


Gangsta Gardener!

Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the inner city, you get strawberries.
