We are a network of neighbors promoting urban agriculture.

The mission of the Avondale Gardening Alliance is to mobilize neighbors to maximize the benefits of urban agriculture. We strive to create a safer and healthier Avondale, where people share their skills and resources to create a network of support for sustainable gardening practices.

Join your neighbors in free workshops and events throughout the year.

The AGA is an approved partner of the U of I Master Gardener program for volunteer hours! Contact us for details: AvondaleGardeners@gmail.com

The AGA works with Concordia Place, a nonprofit with economically inclusive childhood and adolescent programming, to support their teen garden, the foundation of their entrepreneur programming.

The AGA Seed Library provides free seasonal seeds with instructions to the Love Fridge pantry, removing barriers for neighbors to grow their own food, in addition to serving as a hub for neighbor-to-neighbor seed sharing.  Reach out if you have a seed need.

Have some ideas or suggestions? We welcome your input! Drop us a line at AvondaleGardeners@gmail.com
