Partners: New Horizons Community Garden includes individual plots for area residents as well as green spaces for the neighborhood to enjoy. The garden was rejuvenated by Openlands, which unites the people and resources of the diverse Chicago metropolitan region around the goal of land- and water-protection, providing a healthy, vibrant space to live and work. New Horizons Community Garden and Openlands have been Chicago Cares partners since 2013 for this project.
