Will County has helped to fund community gardens in 11 locations to grow fresh food for residents and three learning gardens for school children and memory care patients.
All Nations Church of God in Christ in Joliet has just opened a children's learning and sensory garden.
The county has also funded 10 backyard gardens in the Senior WILL Grow program. The We WILL Grow program has been successful bringing healthy, fresh produce to neighborhoods across Will County that do not have convenient access to traditional grocery stores.
