Elgin Industries Factory Gardens

Community Gardens since 2021

Elgin Industries has been owned and operated by the same family, in Elgin Illinois, since 1919. With deep roots in our local community, we had an idea to share some soil and sunshine with our factory family. We broke-ground in spring of 2021, with 14 plots, each measuring 10′ square.

Sharing Soil and Sunshine

In the last couple years, the garden has grown so vigorously, that we tripled the size! Employees enjoy sharing time with co-workers on lunch breaks, and families work together on evenings and weekends. During these recent years, Elgin’s special-activities-committee has hosted other events at the garden including water balloon extravaganza and locally grown sweet corn harvest.
