Saint James Community Farm

2936 South Wabash Avenue

The Saint James Community Farm was built in 2020 in partnership with Saint James Catholic Church and Food Pantry. The 1/2 acre farm is located on Chicago's south side and offers three primary services to residents.

1) Fresh, organic, culturally affirming food
2) Educational and volunteer programming
3) A wide variety of community building events

In 2024, we are celebrating the 5th anniversary of the farm!
