reclaiming our roots

Creating sustainable and resilient eco-communities on the Southwest Side.



Reclaiming our Roots is an initiative of GPLXC that creates green spaces on the Southwest side for healing and gathering using ancestral wisdom.

This initiative is run by Alberto Lei Rodriguez and exists because our communities suffer from a lack of access to public green spaces while being heavily impacted by environmental racism and divestment. 

Reclaiming our Roots creates opportunities for youth to engage with a community garden while connecting and caring for the land.
