2012 Adopt the Public Way  Garden Grant -  APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED
By Charlie on January 23, 2012
Under the cover of today's snow are summer's plants, getting ready to send up their pale shoots. Gardeners like to think about such things and dream of spreading flowers and shrubs in every parkway, traffic circle and park. If this is you, the Rogers Park Garden Group (RPGG) wants to help. Grants of up to $500 for plant material, soil amendments, and mulch are available to anyone who is creating, restoring, or enhancing a garden located in the public way. The grants program is called, "Adopt the Public Way." Anyone is eligible, but the garden must be in Rogers Park, east of Ridge and north of Devon. Grants are also available for anyone running a youth program that wants to add gardening to the activities; and for the youth projects, the gardens don't have to be in the public way.

I can think of no neighborhood in our nation where that freedom is more treasured, and practiced more frequently, than the 49th Ward of Chicago. That is why the proposal to increase the fines for resisting arrest and the proposed changes to the City of Chicago's parade and public assembly ordinances are of such concern to me and many of my 49th Ward constituents.
