The public votes for winners online!

Stay tuned for our 8th Annual Bungalow Garden Contest, to be announced on June 5, 2024. In the meantime, view last years' contest winners:

Bungalow owners across Chicago demonstrate their love for nature by beautifying their blocks with inspiring home gardens. In 2024, for the eighth year in a row, the Bungalow Garden Contest will aim to celebrate the hard work of our members and draw attention to how gardens not only enhance a home’s architecture, but can also promote a healthier ecosystem and uplift a community.

For every eligible garden contest entry received, a $25 donation is made to South and West Side community gardens. Thanks to your entries last year, a total of $3,000 was donated to six community gardens!

Take a virtual walk through the winning gardens from our past Bungalow Garden Contest:
