Vera's Community Garden

Garden with plantsThe Village of Bourbonnais is pleased to provide residents with a community garden located at Jordan Park - 59 Jordan Dr.

The six-feet-by-four-feet plots are offered to village residents to rent for $10 each and on a first come, first served basis.

Planting season annually blossoms from May 1 through November 1. Applications are available here and in person at the Administration Office at 600 Main Street NW. 

Vera’s Community Garden is named after former Bourbonnais Trustee, Vera Amiano, who served the village for 20 years (1997-2017). Although she passed away in February 2023, Vera left behind a legacy and the Vera C. Amiano Outstanding Community Service Award and Scholarship Fund, administered by the Community Foundation of Kankakee River Valley.

Now, with the dedication of the village’s community garden, her roots will forever be planted in Bourbonnais.
