Garden Tending & Horticultural Training

Saturdays March  – December 10:00am to 1:00pm

Meet At Fountain Court in Wicker Park

1425 N. Damen, Chicago, IL 60622

Registration Required: (773) 278-9075 No Charge

 Each week volunteers learn how to plant and tend all the plants in the park's 10,000 sq. feet of gardens. In addition, they learn the basic design concepts that we have employed in creating our award winning gardens. Many volunteers have worked with us to create exciting gardens at their homes from the concepts and tutoring we provided them while they tended the park's gardens. The gardens are a registered Chicago Park District Community Gardens in the Parks.

 BRING – Pruners, Trowels, Gloves, Knee Pads, and wear clothes that you can get dirty. If you don’t own gardening tools – let us know – and we will provide them for you to use.

The Wicker Park Garden Club and Wicker Park Advisory Council design, fund, and maintain the 10,000 sq. ft. of gardens in the park.  The gardens are registered with the Chicago Park District’s Community Gardens in the Parks Program.
