A 2019 Garden Grant recipient, Homan Rails Farm is on an old rail line that once serviced Sears, Roebuck and Co. and is currently managed by Gardeneers, a Chicago nonprofit providing full-service, customized school garden programs. This large green space is approximately 5,000 square feet and includes five hoop houses and ten raised beds. With a mission of serving the North Lawndale community, Homan Rails Farm has created successful collaborations for education, work and healthy eating.
