The 65th & Woodlawn Community Garden is a cooperative garden with about 100 families or individuals with 10’x10′ plots. We garden organically and have compost bins that are open for neighbors to contribute to. We have a grill, a firepit and a common picnic area – and we are located in the center of Chicago’s south side in the Woodlawn neighborhood.
