New Growth: Planting the Seeds of Hope on Chicago's West Side.
Larson, Chris
Orion Afield: Working for Nature and Community, v3 n3 p28-31 Sum 1999
Aided by funding from public agencies, private foundations, and corporate giving, a previously neglected conservatory on Chicago's west side is introducing inner-city students to plants and nature through after school programs, summer day camps, and field trips. Community revitalization efforts include a demonstration garden and assistance with neighborhood efforts to turn vacant lots into community garden plots. (TD)
