project support community resources


We're very excited to announce that we're partnering with Whole Foods Market Chicago for July, August and September on their One Dime At A Time Program. Everytime you bring your own shopping bag to Whole Foods, they'll toss ten cents towards our project. Pretty generous, especially considering that the Lincoln Park, South Loop, Halsted, Lakeview, and Gold Coast locations are all participating!

It will take thousands of dollars and endless work-hours for us to make this project a reality. Chicago Rarities Orchard Project is entirely volunteer run and solely donation funded. With your support we can create something beautiful and important to benefit Chicago.

In addition to monetary funds, we are currently looking for in-kind donations of organic topsoil.

For more information on how to donate or get involved, contact Dave Snyder: [email protected]
