Saint James Community Farm

2936 South Wabash Ave., Chicago, IL

The Saint James Community Farm was built in 2020 in partnership with Saint James Catholic Church & Food Pantry. It is an 18,000 square foot space that produces over 10,000 pounds of fresh, culturally relevant fruits and vegetables annually. The community farm is a biodiverse green space that enables community members to grow their own food , engage in dynamic, hands on educational programming, and build community through events and shared gathering space.

Community Driven

Community building has always been one of our three core pillars. We work closely with our partners to ensure that our farms meet the needs of the community and support residents in thriving.

 

Learn, Grow, and Engage

Over 10,000 lb. of produce is harvested annually, all of which goes directly back to the community through an affordable community supported agriculture program, weekly farm stand, and weekly donations to nearby food pantries. Our educational programming empowers community members to grow their own food, while incorporating culturally relevant produce into their diet. The farm also serves as a healing environment for people to learn, grow, and engage with one another.

"I love the holistic vision and practice of Just Roots — cultivating community, responding to food insecurity, sustaining the project with CSA subscriptions.... and bringing joy to so many in the process."
