Plant Truck Chicago visits Metropolitan Calumet

Get Growing Foundation’s Plant Truck made a stop at Metropolitan Calumet to share plants and experience-based learning around horticulture with our community, thanks to Calumet Community Board Member LaToyia Huggins!

WGN’s Erin Ivory stopped by to speak with our staff and neighbors for an upcoming feature on the visit and Metropolitan’s growing partnership with the Get Growing Foundation.

Special thank you to LaToyia Huggins, Erin Ivory and WGN, and Plant Truck Chicago for a unique experience.
