This program is offered by The Gardenworks Project – a local non-profit promoting organic gardening to fight food insecurity in our community – and Prairie Food Co-op – a community co-operative grocery store to be established in Lombard.
Late summer is the perfect time to renew your enthusiasm for gardening and plant a variety of crops that grow well in fall. Join Rachel Reklau of Sweet Home Organics to learn how to maximize your growing season and learn tips for big late-season garden harvests.
The GardenWorks Project is pleased to present this class in collaboration with Prairie Food Co-op Community Grocery, a community-owned grocery store dedicated to strengthening our economy and creating a marketplace for local, organic food.
