You've heard of Green Design. What about neighborly design? What can you do to make your neighborhood the kind of place where you feel at home?

Come to share, learn and be inspired at the DIY Neighborhood Open House on Saturday, July 28th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at 2952 W. Lyndale Ave in Logan Square. It’s an idea exchange with demonstrations by Chicago neighbors who have successfully created vibrant community spaces and projects. Plus, be part of the event’s neighborly design photo exhibit – submit a great photo online and it will be considered for display at the event.
