Creating a healthy urban community by bringing food, health, and jobs together in one location.

The Farm on Ogden is located in the North Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago. A joint project of the Chicago Botanic Garden and Lawndale Christian Health Center, the project renovated an existing building to create a space for an indoor market, classrooms, commercial and teaching kitchens, and office space. The Farm cultivates the community using food, by providing much-needed access to fresh produce, as well as training for year-round jobs in agriculture and food industries.
