Tastes of Tuesday: Herban Farm Oasis next to Rush Hour
Entrepeneur AND Molecular Biologist Alicia Nesbary-Moore helps lead Herban Produce, a "year-round farm located in Chicago's Garfield Park" that grows "delicious, high-grade diversified vegetables and micros (greens)." Barry Howard founded the farm in 2013.
Their farm is at least 6 city lots just a few miles from Downtown Chicago and provides much-needed fresh food to the local neighborhoods. They envision a cafe, event space, and live entertainment in the very near future.
