ABOUT THE KEEPING GROUNDED GREENHOUSE PROGRAM

 

Keeping Grounded launched spring 2017 at Herban Produce, a 4,000 sq. ft. non-profit urban farm providing year-round fresh produce to Garfield Park residents and select Chicago restaurant partners. The program provides hands-on horticulture, greenhouse experience and employment opportunities for high school students who need them most— young adults living in violent Chicago communitites with limited access to safe havens or quality employment options.

To date, we have served over 400 children and young adults helping to break the cycle of violence through direct services and employment opportunities.
