Big Green expanded to Chicago in 2012
with the strong support of the City of Chicago.

By 2020, we plan to build 200 Learning Gardens, reaching one third of all students in Chicago Public Schools!


We have recently launched our Chicago 200 campaign, an initiative that will dramatically expand our reach in Chicago Public Schools, impacting over 100,000 students every day. We plan to increase our numbers to 200 Learning Gardens by 2020, working with each of these schools to implement our garden-based programming. This $6.1 million effort will be the largest School Garden initiative in the United States serving over 30% of all schools in CPS. To find out how you can help, contact us today!
