NORTH CENTER — Neighbors can enjoy live music and fresh lemonade made by neighborhood families while touring 50 home gardens and outdoor spaces during a garden walk in North Center Sunday. 

The event is noon-5 p.m. Sunday and organized by the North Center Neighbors Association. 

Organizers are asking for a $5 donation and for people to register for a self-guided tour. They can pick up maps of the participating gardens in the North Center Town Square, 4100 N. Damen Ave., or at Alexander Graham Bell School, 3730 N. Oakley Ave. 

There will be a trolley to pick up and drop off visitors at designated locations throughout the tour. Proceeds from the event benefit Common Pantry

The event will open and close with a Taoist gong ceremony at 2112 W. Grace St. performed by Lisa Hish. It’s dedicated to the memory of Elizabeth Wenscott, who died in 2014 from cancer. She was the owner of the Tai Chi Center of Chicago, association member Jim Nathan said.
