We are always looking for items to use for various projects.
Our current wish list is as follows:

  • Wheelbarrows & gardening tools
  • Large planters & buckets
  • Coir & organic media
  • Heavy shelving
  • Plastic storage totes (such as rubbermaid bins)
  • Organic seeds or started plants
  • Straw, mulch, compost, topsoil
  • Commercial quality cookware
    (pots, pans, stainless mixing bowls, sheet pans, etc.)
  • Aquarium light fixtures, pumps and filters


Any amount you would like to share would be greatly appreciated. The Urban Canopy is a for-profit company registered in 2011 in the state of Illinois. Your donations will not be tax-exempt but are still going to an incredible cause that is making Chicago a better place.

We are currently working towards becoming a “B-Corp” with a triple bottom line of People, Planet, & Profit.
