Ginkgo Organic Gardens celebrates 20 years outgrowing hunger!
Ginkgo Organic Gardens is an all-volunteer community garden in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood that grows fruits and vegetables for those in need using only organic methods. Since 1994, Ginkgo has been out-growing hunger by donating our harvests to local hunger fighting organizations. In recent years we have donated 1,000 – 1,500 pounds of produce annually to Vital Bridges GroceryLand, a food pantry that serves low-income persons living with HIV.
On Saturday, July 12th, Ginkgo will raise a trowel and raise a glass to two decades of service. Please join us for a workday in the morning, a reception at noon, and a late lunch in the afternoon. Drop by at any time, leave at any time, but take a weed with you when you go.
9:00 - 12:00 -- Harvest and workday (at Ginkgo, 4055 N Kenmore)
12:30 - 3:00 -- Dedication, reception and light snacks (at Ginkgo, 4055 N Kenmore)
