El Paseo Community Garden

El Paseo Community Garden is in the Pilsen neighborhood and was founded as Growing Station in 2009. Our garden is located on a former brownfield site and was constructed during the first phase of the rails to trails project “El Paseo”. We are planning a third expansion for a total area of an acre. The garden sits along the public path and maintains a monarch butterfly prairie on one side and raised beds on the other. We offer private allotment beds and participation in free shared beds. The garden serves as a public green space for the neighborhood, especially for their neighbors in the adjacent senior living and affordable housing apartments. El Paseo garden brings a diverse crowd of people together through our monthly community events, including: volunteer days, educational gardening workshops, potluck parties, annual children’s harvest festival, yoga series, and meditation series. Our goal is to Empower through Nature.
