The Altgeld-Sawyer Corner Farm, a great community garden, was vandalized over the weekend. They tore up beds, ripped out the kiosk, threw the chairs and tables all over the place and, I just found out, spread garbage everywhere. Most of the fixing up was completed by the neighbors, but the group still needs your help.

They're involved in one of those online voting things where the winner gets funding. It's one click to help a great group that needs some help. Here are the details: http://1001chicago.com/67-the-garden-2/

    Unbelievable. I used to live around the corner from this farm and loved walking by it every morning on my way to the blue line. It's a great project. Vote placed.

  • Voted--and I don't even have to register for anything!

    Really sorry to hear about this.

  • Allison Kedzie & Fullerton

    Voted.
    I'm always so disappointed when people destroy others hard work. The anger is there first then the disappointment that lingers so much longer.

    Thanks for all of the support friends!

    The outpouring of support in the face of the vandalism was heartening. Thanks, also, for voting!

    If you have a second and can help promote the vote on facebook, we have an event page you can invite people to.

  • I think they are close to winning, please vote if you haven't! I walk past this garden often and have seen how much it has improved year to year. My heart breaks that it was vandalized.
