Provsio Partners for Health Giving Garden
The Giving Garden is an urban farm training program for high school students from Proviso East High School. A local business owner donated land that could promote the well-being of High School students. Partners from schools, health, businesses, and community worked in alignment to build the garden as a site to grow, learn, and sell food. The youth leaders created a mission for themselves to use plants in the service of others at the garden. The Giving Garden is working to become a social enterprise that uses market forces to create a healthier food environment.  

Parking
Free street parking is available along the right side of Greenwood Ave (just south of Madison Street) in Maywood. The Giving Garden will be located immediately to the left of this parking. Additional parking can be found in the ReUse Depot parking lot.
