              Windy City Harvest

              The Chicago Botanic Garden's education and jobs-training program helps to bring food, health, and jobs to the community.


              Food: More than 180,000 pounds of produce is grown every year on 15 farms. Most of the produce stays in the communities where it’s grown on our farms. Health: We offer cooking and nutrition classes as well as affordable or free produce for more than 500 community health center patients with diet-related diseases every year. We support a network of more than 60 family-run community garden plots, empowering families to grow their own healthy food. Jobs: We provide paid, on-the-job training for more than 200 people every year, with a higher than 80 percent placement rate in food systems jobs post-training. Since 2013, Windy City Harvest has helped to grow 20 small farm businesses.
