Event Details

Join us as we learn about one of Chicago’s premiere controlled environment agriculture spots, Farm on Ogden. A joint project by Windy City Harvest and Lawndale Christian Health Center, this Lawndale-based building is a store, growing facility and cafe all in one. Come hear about the programs that make Farm on Ogden a successful organization, supporting the needs of the Lawndale community through their Veggie RX program, job training, urban ag courses, youth programming, community gardens and 7,000 square foot aquaponics system.

Kris De la Torre, Youth Farm and Sustainable Short Course Coordinator from Windy City Harvest, will present, along with Youth Farm Manager, Kate Gannon and Andy McGhee, designer of systems at Farm on Ogden.

Prior to our meeting, you will have the opportunity to shop the retail space, which closes at 7p. There are some amazing items that were grown in the adjacent aquaponic greenhouse for sale here. Very excited to see you all soon!
