Event description
This workshop is part of a series that explores the Sears Sunken Garden in North Lawndale and reimagines its future.

About this event

The Sears Sunken Garden is part of the Sears Headquarters, built in North Lawndale in the early 1900’s. Along with other significant features of the campus, it was registered as National Historic Landmark in 1978.The North Lawndale Community Coordinating Council’s GROWSS Committee is working with the community and renowned garden designers Piet Oudolf and Roy Diblik to restore the garden to its full splendor.

When complete, the restoration of the Sunken Garden will not only serve as a beautiful amenity for North Lawndale residents, but signal to the rest of the city and the world that North Lawndale is a place of beauty and possibility. The garden will also provide educational and employment opportunites for local residents.

Part 1 of this workshop series will take place on January 13 and explores the history of the garden, featuring community and other local experts. Part 2 will take place on January 20 and examines current worldwide trends in garden design. Part 3 invites North Lawndale residents to participate in a garden design process. Each part of the workshop series requires a separate registration.
