Grow Gillespie hosts meetings on the third Thursday of every month. Meetings are held in the Illinois Coal Museum on Macoupin Street at 6:30 pm.
Due to Coronavirus, our monthly meetings are cancelled until further notice.
Layne Knoche, a 'homegrown' landscape architect, working with Grow Gillespie and Curry and Associates, the City's engineering firm, designed this STREETSCAPE proposal. We were quite lucky to acquire Layne's services and he is, perhaps, the very first example of the Grow Gillespie effort to bring back our educated youth to Gillespie.
Produce from the Giving Garden (located at the intersection of Chestnut and Montgomery streets) will go to the Nutrition Center and IVEDC lunch program.
