Kris Pierre and NEIU

We first learned about the possibility of a garden on the campus of Northeastern Illinois University in 2012, through our friends and mentors at the North River Commission.

We’ve met too many other people to name, but it’s easy to say that every one of them has been an amazing source of creativity, engagement, and enthusiasm for the project. We’re very excited about the student engagement programs in environmental education that we’ll be planning and implementing during the summer and into the fall and the new semester.

Visit NEIU-Ground (new ground, get it?) on the old tennis courts on St. Louis just up the block from the corner of Foster and St. Louis.
