City Farm is a sustainable vegetable farm bordering two very diverse Chicago neighborhoods: Cabrini-Green and Gold Coast. The farm boasts thirty varieties of tomatoes, as well as beets, carrots, potatoes, gourmet lettuces, herbs and melons. All produce is grown in composted soil generated from various sources, such as restaurant trimmings from some of the city's finest kitchens.
The farm sells its produce primarily to local chefs and to the public from an on-site market stand. The produce grown at City Farm has been widely praised for its flavor, form and beauty. One of the major goals for City Farm is the creation of a permanent demonstration and training facility. Thousands have come through City Farm's different gardens to be trained or to learn about food.
City Farm is the most recent initiative of the Resource Center. The Resource Center is a Chicago-based not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization with more than thirty years of sustainability experience in recycling, reuse, and resource recovery, helping to re-think the urban landscape one project at a time.
