Cunningham Township is working with the library, parks, schools, community gardens and community partners to launch Solidarity Gardens CU. By providing seeds, tools, knowledge, and redistribution, we wish to address current and worsening food insecurity by amplifying the initiatives local residents to grow food for themselves as well as our neighbors in need. Individuals and organizations are encouraged and empowered to plant gardens throughout the Champaign-Urbana area and donate land, garden supplies, and expertise.

With help from the broader community, Solidarity Gardens CU will be offering free seeds, seedlings, tools, soil, containers, miscellaneous supplies, gardening expertise, and educational resources to any interested party in the Champaign-Urbana area. Produce grown in gardens may be used by the owner for their own food needs and/or distributed to community members who are facing economic and food access challenges through a Solidarity Gardens CU distribution network. Participants will receive a Solidarity Garden yard sign, donated by Cunningham Township, to acknowledge their effort.

Volunteers are also needed to plant seeds and take care of plots. Request your plot now
