Overton Community Garden

As part of 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial, Studio BASAR designed and built the project Breaking Ground: The Schoolyard Workshop in collaboration with students and instructors from the Daniel Hale Williams Preparatory School of Medicine in Bronzeville and Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education (CAPE).


​In 2021 and 2022, Overton Community Garden continued building on the Breaking Ground project by Studio BASAR (2019).  One of the goals of this project is to provide an outdoor space for collective learning and gathering about growing healthy and fresh food while expanding active green areas along Indiana Avenue. The harvested greens and flowers are shared during Community Days.

We are super grateful for all the volunteers that year after year collaborate with us and make space together with us!
