Freeport Neighborhood Garden


Back    |    1     |    Next

The Freeport Neighborhood Gardening Project began in the summer of 2005 as an effort to turn empty city lots into productive gardens. Working with the City of Freeport, U of I Extension, Master Gardeners, United Water, and Neighborhood Housing Services, a group of community members planned and planted a garden plot. The intent of the community group is to start a series of community gardens with the cooperation of many neighborhoods and organizations. The gardens would provide the opportunity for community members to have their own garden plot, work on a garden committed to supplying fresh produce to the Freeport Area Housing Cooperative Food Pantry as part of the local Plant a Row for the Hungry effort, and to serve as a gathering place for families in the communities.
