Green Youth Farm Cooks Lunch

Students from the Green Youth Farm in North Chicago prepare lunch in the kitchen in the Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden. Each Tuesday, a crew from the farm in North Chicago or the farm in North Lawndale prepare lunch for both farms to enjoy in a picnic shelter near the farm in North Chicago. In addition to learning how to grow, harvest and sell the produce on the farm, the students learn how to cook and eat food with fresh ingredients.
