Monthly Meetings

Grow Gillespie hosts meetings on the third Thursday of every month. Meetings are held in the Illinois Coal Museum on Macoupin Street at 6 PM.

Streetscape

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.

Giving Garden

Produce from the Giving Garden (located at the intersection of Chestnut and Montgomery streets) will go to the Nutrition Center and IVEDC lunch program.
