Program

Our community supported agriculture program provides you with an abundance of fresh produce every week, grown on our 100% USDA certified organic farms. In addition to enjoying high-quality, diverse, and heirloom varieties, your participation in our CSA program will help fund our employment training program and community outreach in Chicago. Growing Home provides agricultural and food service training for individuals who have struggled with employment barriers and assists them in securing full time positions. Please explore our website, www.growinghomeinc.org, for more information about the program and other ways to provide your support.
