Announcing TLC’s July Year of Service Project
It’s no coincidence that we decided to head to the Windy City in the middle of the summer, so we figured we should take advantage of the warm weather with a project that will get us outdoors. Enter our July Year of Service organization, Urban Habitat Chicago (UHC). UHC was founded in 2004 and their mission is to create sustainable urban farming projects all over Chicago. These sites are used to run gardening and environmental programs for children and teens in challenged neighborhoods and the fresh produce harvested is distributed to Chicagoans in need through the organization’s partnership with Neighborhood Nutrition Centers.
On Thursday, July 19, TLC volunteers and friends will roll up their sleeves to garden at UHC’s Teaching Farm behind Northside College Preparatory High School. This is the organization’s largest site and volunteers will work alongside local students and adult volunteers.
