On Wednesday 35 current and former public housing residents, Little Italy neighbors, and Museum supporters all came out for the Greening the Grounds event to beautify the future NPHM's front yard.
We are so grateful to these volunteers in addition to the support of our community partners, the Taylor Street Farms and the Garfield Park Conservatory. We also thank Anthony Ruzicka and Hollis Turner for their generous contributions to the event. Together we moved 15 cubic yards of soil to mulch the grounds and planted 30 plants.
