Christy Webber had an idea to plant an edible garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park. She then asked Annamaria Leon, permaculture designer and teacher, to design the project. Angela Taylor, member of the Garfield Park Community Council, took those designs and, with the help of group of high school teenagers, planted hundreds of seedlings in Christy Webber’s greenhouse for the project. Permaculturalist and soil consultant Michael Webb gave those seedlings their best start by drenching them with compost tea in the greenhouse. Webb also prepared the soil for the seedlings. That preparation included mineralization and a healthy soil biology.
The garden was installed and maintained by Annamaria and her intern, Jessica.
