I am a lifetime resident of Chicago. The work that Growing Home is doing is not only providing job training, but utilizing land that has been unused, and most importantly providing healthy, locally gown products to the community. I am able to purchase high quality produce from the Growing Home team on my weekly 'farmer's market' visits. The food is reliably good, and the folks operating the stand are really working hard to be the best operation.

The work of Growing Home is making a difference in our community.
Thank you!

I have worked the amazing people at Growing Home for a few years now on their annual gala and I cannot say enough good things about them. Their model, farms, and training program are all amazing. Beyond that is their amazing group of talented, passionate and committed team members, staff, board, volunteers and friends. They are changing the world every day.
