Chapelseed Community Garden
Last updated on February 24, 2014

We are a diverse neighborhood group growing organic vegetables and flowers for our own health and to create a safe oasis in a troubled area of the city. We are creating a healthier city emotionally, physically, socially, and nutritionally.

Description:
We join together to grow leadership skills, introduce children and adults to the joys of getting to know our neighbors and the joy of growing our own food. We have improved the neighborhood and made it a safer and more congenial inner city neighborhood. We are getting older and need volunteers to help with all aspects of gardening.

History:
We worked for years to get the city to demolish an abandoned apartment house that had become a crack house. Finally, in 1996 the building was demolished and since that time we have created an oasis of beauty and health for wildlife and ourselves.
