The Mercy Garden of Peace and Healing was developed on the West Side of Chicago in the Austin neighborhood to help neighbors come together to heal from the trauma of gun violence and other life difficulties. This garden aims to teach the community how healthy food can help the community heal and give children a safe space to play in.

This garden helps bring peace and sheds light on the resilience of the community.
