Roosevelt Square Youth Farm

Roosevelt Square Youth Farm

Roosevelt Square Youth Farm

In the heart of Chicago Housing Authority’s Abla and Roosevelt Square homes lies our one-acre urban farm, run by neighboring youth.  With the assistance of the senior home next door to the farm, teens gauge what to grow based on demand, and sell their produce at an on-site market weekly during the growing season.  This farm is a partnership between Urban Growers Collective, CHA and After School Matters.

Established in 2011, this farm is located at the intersection of Washburne and Loomis Street, Chicago, IL.
