Green Boxes this weekend at City Farm!

Join City Farm for coffee and green thumb inspiration this Saturday at the launch of City Farm’s Green Box, the portable vegetable garden for your urban space. The ReBuilding Exchange donated reclaimed lumber for this exciting new project!

May 16, Saturday, 9 until noon
1204 N. Clybourn (Clybourn and Division)

City Farm’s Green Box provides an easy, portable way to grow fresh salad greens, spinach, chard, herbs, and other shallow-rooted vegetables on a terrace, backyard, roof or other limited space. Your new garden is constructed of recycled and repurposed materials** from the Chicago area and constructed by volunteers. And best of all the Green Box comes with 100% sustainable City Farm compost, and City Farm lettuce seeds. It will provide a full garden-to-table experience in as little as a 2’x3’ space.

Proceeds go directly to City Farm and it’s parent The Resource Center and are tax-deductible.

On Site Green Thumb Inspiration:
• Tim Wilson, City Farm’s head farmer
• Ken Dunn, The Resource Center’s founder and CEO
• State Senator Heather Steans
• Merrill Smith, head of Green Box Chicago.

RSVP:, or better yet, just stop by.
