Community Development

Growing Home is using the momentum and economic potential of  local, sustainable, organic agriculture as a catalyst for community change. The Englewood and Back of the Yards neighborhoods are greener, healthier, and have greater access to fresh food and food programming as a direct result of Growing Home’s urban farms. What’s more, through partnerships with similarly minded community groups and the creation of the Greater Englewood Urban Agriculture Task Force, Growing Home and its partners are working to build an urban agriculture district stimulating local food system-based business opportunities at all levels: farms, markets, grocery stores, wholesalers, educators, restaurants, and caterers.
