A lot is happening this week at Iron Street. Below you will see a picture of a mural that is currently being created on one of the sides of the site's building. All 40 of our youth are participating in designing and painting it!
This week we will also have a new fence being installed and also hope to construct our first hoop house on the farm. More pictures to come!
Only 9 days left to reach our goal! We still have a ways to go, so please continuing supporting Iron Street Urban Farm and spreading the word on the Global Giving Challenge to friends and family.
This week Growing Power's Iron Street Urban Farm was featured on wttw's Chicago Tonight. Exclusive interviews from Will Allen, Chicago Project's Manager Erika Allen, and the youth that have been working on the site this summer. Take a moment to watch the video and please continue supporting this project! Thank you to all that have already donated.
