Community Gardening

The Evanston Community Garden Recreation Program rents garden plots from mid-March through mid-November to Evanston residents. 

Each site has water, wheelbarrows and wood chips available. 

Community Garden Sites

There are four community garden sites:

  • James Park Gardens on Oakton St.
  • Twiggs Gardens on Simpson St.
  • McCormick Gardens on McCormick Blvd.
  • Lighthouse Gardens on Sheridan Rd.


A lottery is conducted each year to re-assign those plots that have come available since the previous year.
