Chicago Patchwork Farms Fundraiser

$20.00

We need your help to keep the veggies coming in 2021! Due to the ongoing pandemic, Patchwork’s annual fundraiser has gone virtual. Our need is especially great this year because a key revenue source, our farm stand sales have severely declined.  We are raising funds to subsidize the costs of growing and distributing the best fresh organic produce Chicago has to offer. Our mission is to provide equal access to fresh organic produce regardless of income, especially as more community members face food insecurity due to covid-19. With your support, we can make equal access a reality and get farm fresh organic produce directly into the hands of residents who need it.

 

Your donations support local families accessing organic vegetables at low-to-no-cost to them, prioritizing BIPOC. Donations will also help Patchwork pay its farmers a living wage.

Description

ABOUT PATCHWORK FARMS:

Chicago Patchwork Farms is a vegetable farm dedicated to transforming contaminated city land into bio-diverse community space while improving accessibility of healthy food to our neighbors.

We remediate vacant land on Chicago’s south and west sides; neighborhoods that are economically deprived and environmentally distressed, providing space in the community for outdoor gatherings, native pollinator habitat, and food crops. The farm’s diverse operation produces an extensive variety of vegetables, as well as eggs, medicinal herbs, preserved foods, honey, cut flowers, and a compost drop-off program. We host a high-demand 50 member sliding scale CSA pickup, and a pay-what-you-can farm stand – with the majority of our visitors walking or biking to the farm.

Patchwork Farms is a space where city folk, otherwise removed from agriculture, can know their farmers and see organic farming practices. While continuously educating ourselves in the science, sustainability, and best practices of farming, we teach science through hands-on learning to Chicago Public Schools’ students and college interns.

Throughout the growing season the farm is a place to gather; we host a variety of cultural events such as theater, music performance, dance, and storytelling. We’re dedicated to growing healing, medicinal food and vibrant community.
