Proceeds from the garden walk will benefit Respond Now. Respond Now enhances quality of life in south suburban communities by working to alleviate hunger and prevent homelessness for people at risk and helps over 14,000 families annually.
We also support Aunt Martha’s. Aunt Martha’s has become a critical resource for youth and families throughout Illinois, empowering patients and clients to face tough issues head-on and find sustainable and tailored solutions that allow them to live a better life.
Enjoy a beautiful June day, strolling through unique gardens in the south suburbs of Cook County. You will be inspired by the natural beauty and design of the gardens, as well as the interesting stories of how they were developed. Master Gardeners will be available in each garden to answer your questions.
All those who have an appreciation for beauty, a passion for nature and a love of community service are welcome. Come get ideas from the owners and horticulturalists to create your own flower power by bringing nature and beauty to your space, be it big or small.
The walk is sponsored by the National Council of Jewish Women, a grassroots organization of volunteers & advocates who strive for social justice by improving the quality of life for women, children, & families & by safeguarding individual rights & freedoms.
This year's garden walk is lovingly dedicated to Cece Childress who selflessly dedicated herself to the Southland Community Garden Walk since its inception in 2010.
