Urban Agriculture is a way to allow children to access fresh vegetables, to encourage healthy eating and cooking habits in families, to provide low-income people access to nutrition in areas that are otherwise considered “food deserts,” to create a job in

We are a group of citizens—working under a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation—to grow healthy food, without herbicides or pesticides, to feed low income families. The Waukegan Park District partners with us by generously providing land and water. We also promote the concept of urban farming and help to plant other community gardens.

Our vegetables and fruit are grown in raised beds, and we are also building a hoop house to extend our growing season. Our crops are distributed through a local food bank that serves over 20,000 people per year. With over 40 raised beds, we can produce annually about 1 ton of fresh produce. Because of our 501(c)(3) status, contributions of funds, supplies, or equipment are tax deductible and are greatly appreciated! Help us enter into our 2017 Growing season with resources to expand and provide "Healthy Food For Hungry Families"
