An Urban Garden in Chicago
This is a 2003 article from The New York Times. I remember reading it when it first ran, and feeling really struck by the juxtaposition of fancy organic produce and Cabrini Green. The garden in the story is not a traditional community garden, but that's what it makes me think of anyway. I see a few around my area (I think there's one at 13th & Wylie), but nothing big. I did find an article about community gardening in Brookland.
