About the Event

ECC is part of a team of volunteer Garden Leaders running the Vedgewater Community Garden, a Neighborspace Garden, on land donated by Loyola. 

We are growing The Commons in 6 beds and creating other educational and fun workshops and events!

The Commons is an EEC initiative at Vedgewater maintained by the community for the community. Anyone is welcome to garden and harvest from these plots after going through the garden’s orientation.

The EEC Commons plots include:

  • Beds of natives with plants donated from Loyola's Urban Agriculture Program
  • Bed of edibles from Loyola and Chicago Community Gardeners Association Donations and distributed to volunteers as well as the Edgewater Mutual Aid Network's weekly free food distribution
  • An apothecary herbal medicine, ecofeminist garden plot

We welcome everyone, for whatever reason, doesn’t grow in a rental plot, to join us and benefit from the Commons.

You must attend an orientation to receive access to the garden outside of scheduled workdays.
