Grace Lutheran Community Garden

Grace Lutheran Community Garden was established in spring of 2009 to make garden space available to neighbors in the Wabash Avenue area. Ground-breaking took place in April 2009, and the garden is currently full with 12 hard working gardeners. Their mission is to grow food for themselves, and also tend additional plots to share with neighbors and with Plowshares Community Dining Hall, which serves over 27,000 free meals a year.

Gardener of the Month - Toni Fort

Congratulations to our December Gardener of the Month, Toni Fort! Toni is the stellar volunteer garden coordinator at Grace Lutheran Community Garden, a pioneer establishing a replicable model for faith-based organizations having a community garden. Toni truly sets the bar for what a garden coordinator can do: organizing work parties at the garden, using available communication methods from chalkboards to blogging, and leading by example with her abundant and well-tended garden plots. We sure appreciate Toni’s efforts and we think her hard work will be a boon in helping other faith-based organizations to start community gardens. The Gardens Project interviewed Toni recently. Watch the interview to hear Toni’s thoughts on faith-based gardening.
