WICKER PARK — If you buy a $10 herb garden kit from Easy Bar next week, your investment will go a lot farther than your own kitchen or back deck.
From Sunday-Aug. 24, Easy Bar, 1944 W. Division St., will donate 100 percent of proceeds from herb garden kit sales to Gardeneers, a nonprofit that builds gardens in Chicago schools.

Founded in 2014, the Homan Square-based nonprofit works with schools on the South and West sides of Chicago, planting gardens with vegetables like carrots, lettuce, beets, potatoes and kale.
In 2015, Gardeneers brought Chicago chef Stephanie Izard to Montessori School of Englewood, 6550 S. Seeley Ave., DNAinfo reported.
