Urban Growers Collective (UGC)

UGC invites local artists to its South Side Farm in Chicago to offer workshops on co-creating public art like murals, mosaics, and functional sculptures, as well as workshops on gardening, medicinal herb cultivation and preparation, and growing heritage seeds. The workshops are primarily attended by members of local communities. UGC also has a “Farmers for Chicago Incubator” and workforce training program in which youth and adults learn to grow, process, and market cultural foods for their health and livelihood.
