I have been collecting ideas for community gardens, nature playscapes, education and nature crafts on my own Pinterest account for a long time. I’ve decided to share some of these ideas and have created a Pinterest account. Search for our page! Username: BelmntOpenSpace, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or title: Belmont Open Space Initiative. (Or click here.) Let’s hope some of these amazing ideas generate some excitement!
The Belmont Open Space Initiative is an attempt to reclaim the vacant lots along Chicago’s Belmont Avenue between Ashland and Kedzie. It is our goal to restore the dilapidated plots into healthy natural urban environments accessible to the community.
