Space to Grow now has its very own website!
Space to Grow is co-managed by Healthy Schools Campaign and Openlands and transforms Chicago schoolyards into beautiful and functional spaces to play, learn, garden and be outside. Schoolyards also use special design elements to help reduce neighborhood flooding. The program partners include Chicago Public Schools, the Chicago Department of Water Management and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago.
The new website, which can be found at spacetogrowchicago.org, features information about the program, how Space to Grow impacts education, health and the environment and FAQs and resources for schools. The site also houses the Green Schoolyards report, which documents the journeys and lessons of green schoolyard programs across the country and can be downloaded for free.
In addition, the website contains two sections which will feature new content multiple times a month: a News + Events section, as well as a gallery featuring beautiful photos from groundbreakings, before and after shots, community gardening days and more.
