Iron Street Farm
Growing Power’s Iron Street Farm:
This 7-acre site bordered by the Chicago River is located in the Bridgeport Neighborhood of Chicago at 3333 South Iron Street. Previously an abandoned industrial site, the renovated Iron Street property serves as the City’s first “green” campus. It provides healthy/sustainable food, composting, employment and educational opportunities, and green community development. By bringing together food related activities that are typically dispersed, an urban farm as a community food center allows for an integrated approach to addressing many community related concerns.
