Soil Field Day at Growing Home

March 7, 2023 | 1pm-3pm
5814 S. Wood Street, Chicago, IL 60636

Soil Health Week is back for its second year! We can’t wait to celebrate Illinois’ most precious resource along with Illinois Stewardship Alliance by hosting a Field Day. You can register to attend our event by clicking the link below. 

Join Growing Home staff to learn all about how we use soil and compost at an urban farm setting in Chicago! A tour of our 1.5 acre farm site with 7 hoop houses and outdoor space with our lead Farm Manager and mini-workshops on soil testing. And, you can learn first-hand by volunteering with us to prepare the beds for the spring growing season, which could include lessons on how we spread compost and make rows according to our crop plan as well as soil planting techniques itself.
