PGP is Growing – and YOU Can Help!

PGP is growing! And we’re not just talking about tomatoes – we’re bringing a brand new, permanent, edible community garden to Uptown that will expand our education and food access programs to the community.

GrowUptown is about providing more: more space for the community to grow, more education for people who want to learn, more capacity for PGP to donate fresh, local, organic produce to neighborhood partners. And the impact of this garden can reach beyond Uptown – with your help.

PGP teaches critical food growing skills to more than Uptown residents, more than PGP gardeners, more than people who garden as a hobby. PGP teaches skills that empower individuals and groups: skills that are transferable; skills that can be economized; skills that are important for every age, race, gender, sex, and background. Now more than ever it is important to take control of our own food supply, costs, health, and availability. 

Give today and join us in our efforts to show how every community can come together on the ground, every day to respond to our nation’s crisis in food safety, access, quality, and security. Become part of the team that sees a bigger, brighter, fresher picture. Through GrowUptown, our reach and impact will expand even further.

Are you ready to grow more? We are…and we need your help. With your donation, you’ll join our partners, including the 46th Aldermanic Ward, NeighborSpace, Uptown United/SSA #34, Heartland Health Centers, Uplift High School, Thresholds, EZRA Multi-service Center, CEDARst Companies/FLATS Chicago, and more in declaring that learning to grow your own food is a crucial and valuable skill.

GrowUptown is more than just a garden. GrowUptown is your opportunity to make a difference. Your donation today matters. Join us. Because everybody eats.
