Come join us on Wednesday, June 3rd for Greening the Grounds!

Please note the new date of June 3rd!

Last August, members of the Little Italy neighborhood, including neighbors, Taylor Street Farms volunteers, University Village Association members, and residents of the ABLA public housing community, came together with other NPHM supporters to spiff up the grounds of the future Museum site. Scheduled right before the annual Festa Italiana in Little Italy, the event was an opportunity to beautify the grounds and reconnect with our neighbors.   

On Wednesday, June 3rd, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm at 1322 W. Taylor St., we look forward to bringing out the shovels, moving the dirt, and planting the future blooms along the Museum building's front facade! Snacks and great company will also be in attendance as we continue our gardening tradition! 

We are also looking for donations of planting soil, mulch, and plants for our raised beds. If you or someone you know could help sponsor these or other garden items for the event, please email Daniel Ronan, the Manager of Public Engagement at or call him at 773.257.7241.
