The GardenWorks Project

  • 41 people are interested

The GardenWorks Project is a non-profit organization based out of the western Chicagoland region. We work with the food insecure by providing home gardening opportunities as an empowerment tool.

Approximately 40% of our client population is primarily Spanish-speaking. Due to COVID-19, much of our resources have shifted to electronic and text communication. We need approximately 40 hours of support from someone who is well-versed in written Spanish communication, to translate materials about food security and gardening from English to Spanish.

Mission Statement

Mission: The GardenWorks Project empowers, educates, and promotes organic suburban agriculture to improve the wellbeing of our community, the environment, and families facing food insecurity. We support all gardeners in their efforts to grow and prepare food for themselves and their neighbors in need.

Vision: Our community nourished by gardeners empowered to grow and share food.

Description

We help families who would otherwise be unable to grow their own food because of financial need, disability, or advanced age. The GardenWorks Project works with area food pantries to identify families who are both in need of food assistance and want to grow their own food. Our dedicated group of volunteers make it happen.

We welcome volunteers to help us build gardens in May and June of each year, and serve on our board of directors or committees.
