Green Youth Farm

Each summer, teens from low-income communities work at the Green Youth Farm in Lake County to grow produce while gaining paid work experience, entrepreneurial skills and exposure to healthy foods and cooking. This program is a partnership between the Lake County Forest Preserves, the Preservation Foundation and the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Fresh produce is available for purchase at a weekly farm stand:

Wednesdays, 9 am–1 pm, from August 18–October 13

The farm stand is located in the parking lot of the Greenbelt Cultural Center, at 1215 N. Green Bay Road, North Chicago.
