FarmWorks at a Glance For many low income communities, good jobs and healthy food are in short supply. To help solve both problems, Heartland Human Care Services, in partnership with the City of Chicago, NeighborSpace, and the Greater Chicago Food Depository, operates a 2.6 acre urban farm in Chicago’s East Garfield Park neighborhood. 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. 70 percent of the people who participate in this program gain well-paid, long-term employment. Together, we’re providing the opportunities people need to support their families and make their community a more beautiful place to live – all while bringing fresh, healthy produce to the community. Volunteering at FarmWorks Chicago FarmWorks welcomes large (10-250 volunteers) corporate and service groups to participate in service days and volunteer projects at our East Garfield Farms and Harvest Commons, a rehabilitated Art Deco building, managed by Heartland Housing, offering 89 units of permanent supportive housing on Chicago’s Near West Side as well as access to on-site supportive services, and an urban agriculture program (on-site urban farm, orchard, apiary, resident flock of chickens, teaching kitchen, and resident pavilion), managed by Chicago FarmWorks. FarmWorks can host service events for up to 250 people. Farm tasks vary day to day and may include, but are not limited to: weeding, shoveling soil/ gravel, wheelbarrowing materials, planting seedlings, etc. Select the project and date(s) you can do (Tuesday and Thursday afternoons 2-5pm)4/29-5/35/6-5/105/20-5/246/3-6/76/10-6/146/17-6/216/24-6/287/1-7/57/8-7/127/15-7/197/22-7/267/29-8/28/5-8/98/12-8/168/19-8/238/26-8/309/2-9/69/9-9/139/16-9/209/23-9/279/30-10/4 None of these dates work for my group, but please contact me about future vounteering opportunities!
