(Transcribed just in case you don't feel like lying or crouching down on the sidewalk at Lakewood and Farwell.)
This corner has been adopted by the Rose Rider Garden Group of Rogers Park! We are a collection of local gardeners and artists interested in helping Chicago to return to its gardening glory days via planting beneficial native plants, fruit and nut trees and shrubs.
Chicago's motto is "Urbs in Horto", which is Latin for City in a Garden. Let's work together to put Chicago on the map as one of the greenest cities in America. Planting fruit and nut trees and landscaping with native plants is the way of the future.
