We started the Altgeld Sawyer Corner Farm as a community experiment – as a place to meet our neighbors and develop community as we work shoulder to shoulder.
The farm provides a safe corner and spaces for our youth to learn and play. It’s a place where our community can learn where food comes from and how to save our money and improve our health by growing our own food. The farm is a place where the art can be experienced and practiced.
The Altgeld Sawyer Corner Farm gives us, as a community, a way to create and support a sustainable neighborhood, ecologically and sociologically. The farm is a way to give back to a neighborhood that gives us all so much.
Our partners include:
Neighbors, Christopher House, Columbia College Book and Paper Dept, Twine NFP, Grounds for Growth
