The Community Gardens at Prairie Green is a cooperative partnership between the Geneva Park District, the City of Geneva and the Forest Preserve District of Kane County
Now that the first growing season has come to an end, we are preparing for the 2013 growing season. Whether the garden is a place for you to connect with nature, get physical exercise, build a sense of community, or just space for a much wanted garden - join our growing community!
Thank you To All Our Gardeners!
During the 2012 gardening season, we were able to donate over 2,500 pounds of produce to the Northern Illinois Food Bank. Thanks for your hard work and dedication to the gardening community.
