Abbodanza Garden Build @ Excel Southwest

  • Excel Academy of Southwest 7014 South Washtenaw Avenue Chicago, IL, 60629 United States (map)

Join us in building a brand new garden for the Excel Academy of Southwest, an option high school, serving Chicago's most disadvantaged youth. The leadership at this school wants to incorporate healthy eating, introductions to culinary arts, and farm to table entrepreneurial experiences into the curriculum. 

The school isn't in this alone, the whole community will be sharing this garden space and the food it produces, including the nearby St. Adrian Roman Catholic Church, a children's nursery across the street, and neighbors from the whole community. 

Come out to the 7000 block of South Washtenaw this Sunday 10/14 from 1pm - 4pm, and enjoy food, music, and the camaraderie of Chicagoans working together.
