Announcing Keeler Gardens a New Non-Profit Educating on Biophilia in Old Irving Park

Old Irving Park, Chicago, IL 11/21/16 – Ed Caplan, 16 year resident of Old Irving Park, is pleased to announce a new community resource, Keeler Gardens.  After 10 years, Keeler Gardens is now formally offering programs and education on biophilia and how our local environment can better our well-being, free of charge to the Old Irving Park community.

“Biophilia is our innate desire to connect with the natural world, and that connection offers something so special and important,” states Caplan, Executive Director of Keeler Gardens. “When we nurture this connection we see rejuvenation and increased attention, less fatigue and stress, increased productivity, and enhanced healing.  Even childhood diagnoses are reduced.”

Whether you want to get your hands dirty, review research, or just enjoy a stunning view, you will find all of that at Keeler Gardens.
