About Big Green

The Kitchen Community has built 145 Learning Gardens in Chicago and is reaching over 85,000 students every day. We build Learning Gardens, turning dirt lots into beautiful outdoor classrooms all over Chicago. We provide all of our schools with seeds and seedlings, offer workshops and one-on-one training, we have custom curriculum and a whole library of standards-aligned garden lessons and activities, and we are always available to help them figure out what that bug is that’s eating their tomatoes or why they haven’t had any cucumbers this summer.

All of those services are provided free of cost to our schools, and our amazing community of supporters is the reason that’s possible. Please join us today and help a child in Chicago fall in love with real food!
