Community Building Urban Agriculture in Avondale

The Avondale Gardening Alliance (AGA) is a network of neighbors growing urban agriculture in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago. We are a very active community, with dozens of educational and community-building demonstrations, workshops, resource sharing, and social events throughout the year. Your donation will help us maximize the benefits of urban agriculture in Avondale. We will use the money to purchase event infrastructure, like tables and canopies, and materials, such as seeds, soil, tools, printing, tarps, etc. The AGA is a not-for-profit through the fiscal sponsorship of NeighborSpace.
More information about NeighborSpace: NeighborSpace is the only nonprofit land trust in Chicago that preserves and sustains gardens on behalf of dedicated community groups. We support community gardens - through property ownership, insurance, water, stewardship, education, tool lending, project planning, fundraising support, troubleshooting and more - so that community groups can focus on gardening and on their community building vision, generating food, beauty, play, health and safety for their neighborhoods.
