Chicago Botanical Gardens

The first generation of sustainable gardens at the Chicago Botanic Garden were the victory gardens of World Wars I and II. Today’s gardens incorporate food and paper scrap composting, sustainable irrigation, and a minimal use of fertilizer and pesticides. The Chicago Botanic Garden also encourages others to garden sustainably by composting food waste, installing backyard rain barrels, using native plants, removing invasive species, and establishing perennials. The Windy City Harvest program offers workshops in sustainable urban horticulture and urban agriculture.
