I have an upcoming gardening program in the Uptown neighborhood, which is one of the more diverse neighborhoods in Chicago. I had decided to reach out to the Uptown Farmer’s Market because I thought that folks who like healthy eating might be interested in a program about gardens. That farmer’s market is actually in the Weiss Hospital parking lot. I had quickly learned that the hospital has a rooftop garden, and today I had the opportunity to tour the garden and snap a few pictures for you to see! There are many more beds on the entire parking lot, but these particular are cared for by refugees from the Heartland Alliance. The same volunteers, who garden also, sell the harvested produce at the market. Over the course of my morning, I had a great time learning about the garden and the market, but also invited the customers and vendors to the garden event. You should come, too!
