Meet Big Green Chicago

Big Green Chicago is the single largest school garden network in a US city reaching one-third of all Chicago students with 200 Learning Gardens.


Big Green has built 200 Learning Gardens in Chicago since 2012. A Learning Garden is a powerful teaching tool, a way for kids to learn about healthy food, and a way to provide hands-on learning experiences for children across Chicago.
