Welcome! Neighbors, please pop by and enjoy the garden!
This year, we’ve planned new raised beds, educational components, and walking path improvements.
The Mindful Living Garden is located at 3323 N Drake, near Avondale Park in Chicago. During the growing season, community members are welcome to join Avondale Gardeners on scheduled workdays to work and learn together. The rest of the week, community members can come and go as they please, enjoying the meditative space. The AGA Mindful Living Community Garden grows produce specifically for the Avondale Mutual Aid to address food insecurity in Avondale.
This year, we are looking forward to increasing signage to bring a more engaging experience to garden visitors. Also, a beautiful Polish heritage inspired mural is being added. Stop by and watch our progress!
