The Elgin Community Garden Network (ECGN), in Elgin Illinois, is at 16 community gardens and growing. Community gardens are at schools, in parks, in low-income neighborhoods, at churches, at the library, and even on a courthouse lawn.
………Our mission is to teach sustainable skills and to feed the hungry. Everything we grow is organic.
………Events are kid-friendly and family friendly. Individuals, groups, clubs, classes, families, neighbors, scouts, and organizations of any kind are warmly welcome. Events are posted on our PUBLIC FaceBook page. You do not need a Facebook account to view our events.
………Volunteers may plant, tend, harvest and deliver crops; manage garden sites; help with publicity; staff our booth at events; build 4×4 or 3×3 raised garden frames; teach what they know; and more. Whatever your skill, there is a place for you!
