New year, new farms!
We are always looking to expand our footprint in an effort to serve more neighborhoods and reach more youth and young adults. This year we are excited as we plan to expand to three new neighborhoods! We are partnered with Providence Englewood Charter School in West Englewood to build a site to give more access to their student body to urban agriculture.
We are also working with Dunnes STEM Academy in Roseland to build out a 1.25 acre site for their student body and local community.
Finally, we are working with the Emerald South Economic Development Collaborative to build out a new site in Washington Park. These new sites are in addition to our four existing sites (Englewood, two in Woodlawn, and West Garfield Park) so by the end of the year we hope to have seven sites total in Chicago! It is amazing to see the high level of interest all across the city in having an Eco House flower farm and we hope that this is only the beginning!
