North Central College - Naperville, IL

Community garden flourishes in new location

Faculty, staff, students and community members get their hands dirty to help maintain the community garden, now located at Chicago Avenue.

North Central’s organic community garden has a new home on Chicago Avenue. The recent move from the Loomis Street location was necessary for construction of the new Science Center.

Faculty, staff, students and community members have been caretakers of the campus’s community garden since its start in 2010. They are eligible to maintain one or more of the 26 garden plots and the plots maintained by Chartwells produce fresh produce for Kaufman.
