Senator Dick Durbin recently visited two west side locations where the Chicago Botanic Garden is training people to grow healthy food for their communities: the Windy City Harvest garden at the Arturo Valasquez Institute and the Cook County Boot Camp garden. He spoke with participants who are learning how to grow organic vegetables and sell them in communities that don’t have access to fresh produce.
