Chicago Yard Sharing Network

LETS GO Chicago is committed to growing a food-independent Rogers Park!

Email team@letsgochicago.org to apply to join or to share your land!!

As part of our vision of a ‘greener’ Rogers Park, we support a yard sharing network of shared vegetable gardens on private land. Guided by principles of collaborative gardening, food justice, and open-ended goals, the network aims to provide new opportunities to grow food while growing as a community. The network consists of partnerships between neighbors with under-used land and neighbors looking for space to grow food. Not only do growers and homeowners split the produce, but a portion goes to neighborhood food distribution efforts. With food prices rising and the environmental and public health consequences of industrial agriculture increasingly evident, the Rogers Park Yard Sharing Network is a platform for our community to come together and begin to support itself.
