RAW VENUE #25
Montrose Metra Community Gardens, along the west side of Ravenswood from Montrose to Berteau, have been created and tended to by dedicated volunteer gardeners of all ages and levels of expertise since 2015. It is the skinniest community garden you’ll ever see; however this formerly unused stretch of land is now home to 45 raised vegetable gardens, native fruit trees and bushes, a pollinator flyway, picnic table, benches and five bee hives!
The bounty from our volunteer vegetable plots go to our local food pantries and the fruit from the trees and bushes is available to our neighbors. Come hang out on a bench or bring a picnic and enjoy this little lovely place of refuge in the middle of the city.
