Inspired by the CAC's Ecologies of Elsewhere exhibit, the summer Co-LAB series Backyard Gardens invites participants into the gardens of creative BIPOC growers throughout the city to discuss their relationship to food, planting, and the healing power of gardening.
August's Backyard Gardens event takes place in Evanston at Jardin del Sol, an urban garden started by artist Julia Orquera Bianco. The garden is home to many native medicinal plants and is slowly expanding to include vegetables.
This event is free but registration is required. Participants will receive the garden location upon registering for the event.
