Teens that participated in Architecture and Design: Learning in the Built Environment (part of LBBA’s community outreach through After School Matters) designed and built kiosks that are now on display in the exhibition City Is A Community Garden. The kiosks can be used to post community information, as well as provide both a space for repose and an identity for the gardens. Through the exhibition at the Chicago Tourism Center, various representatives of Chicago’s community gardens will be able to see the kiosk prototypes and envision how their gardens can be enhanced.
City Is A Community Garden, an exhibition that looks at urban gardens, vertical farming in the city, and urban chicken keepers through photographs, architectural drawings, and installations. In conjunction with the exhibition, there will be a series of free community garden tours organized by NeighborSpace in Chicago neighborhoods at 10 am on June 26, July 31, and August 28. To make reservations for the garden tours please visit http://communitygardentours.eventbrite.com.
