Neighborspace Howard Area Community Garden Workday
Saturday, May 19th
9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
1715 W. Juneway Terrace
Join volunteers from Neighborspace, Openlands, and Chicago Cares for an exciting workday at this Rogers Park community garden, one of the oldest commmunity gardens in the city.
There are 50 vegetable plots housed in this garden and maintained by local gardeners.  They need help preparing vegetable beds, fixing a fallen fence, mulching pathways, turning compost and other garden-related tasks.  Gloves and tools are provided, however bringing your own tools would also be helpful (be sure to put your name on your items).  Bring snacks and water and wear clothes that can get dirty.

Chicago River Day 20/20 still has many events before River Day!

Twenty years ago, Friends of the Chicago River started Chicago River Day with 25 volunteers who dragged shopping carts, mattresses, and plastic bags from its banks. Today, this inspiring event has grown to 4,000 volunteers at 65 locations along the Chicago River.

Celebrate this amazing milestone through Chicago River Day 20/20 – 20 days of events and activities that commemorate this milestone and get people involved. There is something for everyone so scroll through the calendar on the website and see what you can do.  Events include lectures, tree planting, tours and, of course, Chicago River Day.
