Community Outreach

Christy Webber Landscapes’ Edibles Division partners with many community organizations across Chicago to provide materials, labor and trainings to support the urban agriculture programs and community greening initiatives. We assist in the creation and implementation of production gardens, pollinator gardens, and community orchards.  This specific site hosts an urban agriculture training program in vegetable production, fruit orchard management, community composting with Nance Klehm’s Ground Rules, healthy soil building, healthy eating and entrepreneurship programs.

Weather Alert

Winter is here, Chicago, and it's time to make sure your landscapes are ready for the cold season ahead. A few tips from our experts: be sure to wrap your arborvitaes to protect them from the wind and snow; make sure your leaves are picked up to avoid potential icy hazards; shut down and put away fountains and/or fountain pumps and clean out and prepare your bird feeders for winter visitors.
