Chicago Parks Foundation Awards Grant to Horner Park Advisory Council

The Chicago Parks Foundation, an affiliate of the Chicago Park District, has awarded a grant to the Horner Park Advisory Council to restore and improve the garden at Ravenswood Manor Park.
First planted in 2001, on the site of former Eastwood Street, the garden has become overgrown in the past few years.  Volunteers from the Stewardship Committee have been planning all winter to revive the garden, and this grant will help make that happen!
The grant will be the equivalent of $500, and consist of providing native plants and soil.  In early May, the Stewardship Committee plans to replant the garden.
Volunteers will be needed to help in the planting and maintenance of this garden.  Look for more information on this site for more information on how you can assist in this wonderful neighborhood project.
