A small but mighty group went to FarmWorks in late September. Heartland Human Care Services (HHCS), in partnership with the City of Chicago, NeighborSpace, and the Greater Chicago Food Depository, operates a 2.6 acre urban farm. We distribute local produce of the highest quality to those who need it most, and support people overcoming multiple barriers to employment to secure full-time, permanent, viable jobs.
Lincoln Property Company partnered with FarmWorks for an afternoon or weeding and planting seasonal vegetables in Chicago’s East Garfield Park neighborhood. Said Craig Cudzilo, “It was a great day at the farm!”
