The GardenWorks Project is a volunteer-led nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing food insecurity in Chicago’s west suburbs by providing families in need of food assistance with home vegetable gardens and educational resources. We help families who would otherwise be unable to grow their own food because of financial need, disability, or advanced age. 

The GardenWorks Project works with area food pantries to identify families who are both in need of food assistance and want  to grow their own food. Our dedicated group of volunteers make it happen.


Would you like to invest about an hour of your time to build a garden for a family in need? Learn about volunteering with The GardenWorks Project.
