Conservatory Community Garden

The Franklin Park Conservatory Community Garden (FPCCG) is managed by the Growing to Green (G2G) Program. It is located in the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company Community Garden Campus and offers a variety of benefits to the communities. Not only does it improve access to fresh food but it provides a space for neighbors to connect and reflect on nature’s beauty. This garden also serves as a model for participants in G2G.
