Outdoor Opportunities

September 28, 2019

Join us as we create an outdoor commons area, build solar panels, create an apiary, paint school signage and prepare the garden for fall. We will activate spaces on the exterior of the Gary Comer Youth Center. These activities involve carpentry, painting, STEM and gardening.

The gardens support their south side community by employing teens and producing food that both nourishes the immediate community and is sold to support the Comer Education Campus. To learn more about the Youth Center, visit www.garycomeryouthcenter.org
