The Dundee Community Garden was founded in 2009 on a vacant lot at 4902 Underwood. In Dec. 2012, we kicked off a fundraising campaign to purchase the property, with the goal of making the garden a permanent part of the neighborhood. After receiving grants from the Sherwood Foundation and The Peter Kiewit Foundation, and receiving great support from neighbors and neighborhood businesses, we were able to meet our fundraising goal.
We purchased the property on May 15, 2013. In June 2013, two yard hydrants were installed to supply water for our entire site, instead of relying on water from the neighboring house. Following our purchase of the property, and the site changes connected to the Dundee Business District’s Streetscape 2013 construction, we have lots of work to do… so watch for steady improvements to the property over the summer of 2013 and beyond.
We continue to host educational workshops and neighborhood events during the gardening season. Please stop by the garden at any time to see what’s growing, and visit our Facebook page for pictures and the latest information on our events, facebook.com/DundeeGarden
A sincere thank you to the foundations, neighborhood businesses, and the many neighbors who have supported the garden. We are continuing to accept donations, which will be used for additional improvements that were not part of our original grant request, such as improving the garden entrance and garden walkways. It’s not too late to donate, and your donation will make a difference! Donate using the DONATE button on our Growing Roots page, or send a check to,
