Meet LaManda Joy, Founder and President of the Peterson Garden Project. In this episode, LaManda tells us about turning lot lust into a organization that empowers people to build Pop Up Victory Gardens all over the city, directs us to check out the Broadway Armory and gives us the most positive Listen Up Chicago this show has ever seen.
You can find the Peterson Garden Project on the web, on Facebook, on Twitter and on Instagram. If you want to know more about LaManda's books, you can find it at LaMandaJoy.com
