Corboy & Demetrio is a proud participant and sponsor of Chicago Gateway Green’s Expressway Partnership Program, which aims to keep the city’s expressways and neighborhoods green and litter free with the help of public-private sponsorships.
The Expressway Partnership Program turns dreary embankments on the major expressways leading into and out of the city into ribbons of green parkways. More than 100 gardens comprise the program, covering almost 150 acres of roadside landscapes. Each garden utilizes native shrubs, trees, and perennials that require fewer resources and are well adapted to harsh roadside growing conditions.
Corboy & Demetrio’s garden sits on the east side of the Edens Expressway just south of Chicago Avenue and has sponsored the garden for many years.
Chicago Gateway Green is a non-profit, public-private partnership dedicated to the greening and beautification of Chicago’s expressways, gateways and neighborhoods through landscape enhancement, litter and graffiti removal and the installation of public art.
