In partnership with the Chicago Park District, this “landscaped” urban farm demonstrates how to grow an abundance of vegetables, culinary herbs and edible flowers in a beautiful and productive way. Teens are trained on this site to grow food and give tours to the approximately 10,000 people who walk past this site annually.
Established in 2005, this farm is located at the intersection of Congress and Columbus, Chicago, IL.
