Earth Day in Englewood

By Martha Boyd, Program Director, Urban Initiative (Chicago)

On Saturday April 27, Comcast Cares and Links Unlimited celebrated Earth Day with the Eat to Live crew in E2L's Community and Learning Garden in southeast Englewood.  They cheerfully weeded out grass from garden beds, hauled many loads of compost, and collected the winter's trash and debris.  Comcast employee Roberto singlehandedly moved about a ton of compost, while his co-worker Vernice posed next to her newly-fluffed beds.  She plans to help the E2L Garden grow all season.  The work day ended with a visit by the Fresh Moves Mobile Market, returning monthly for E2L's Saturday events this summer and fall.  For more information and E2L's schedule of activities, contact Program Coordinator, Anton Seals.

 

The Eat to Live (E2L) Englewood project is a collaborative effort of Angelic Organics Learning Center and Real Men Charities, Inc to develop an urban Farm and Garden at 70th Place and Princeton in southeast Englewood and Chicago’s 6th ward.
