Bio

Growing Home, Inc. is a nonprofit, social enterprise that offers job training and employment opportunities to Chicagoans experiencing barriers to employment by teaching them urban organic farming, job readiness and life skills. Its farm sites on the South Side of Chicago and in rural LaSalle County grow a wide variety of vegetables, with a focus on year-round greens such as spinach and arugula, early-season heirloom tomatoes and unique crops like malabar spinach. During Growing Home’s annual job training programs, trainees learn job skills in customer service, landscaping, and culinary services through work on Growing Home farm sites and market stand.
