Windy City Harvest

Windy City Harvest Funders

Windy City Harvest Youth Farm

While earned revenues support some of the annual operating costs of the Chicago Botanic Garden’s Windy City Harvest programs for youth and adults, government grants and the generosity of foundation, corporate and individual donors truly sustain this ongoing initiative. We thank all those who recognize the importance of this work to advance a more sustainable and healthy food system, to research and innovate new growing strategies, and to serve communities of need with education and green job opportunities.

The Chicago Botanic Garden gratefully acknowledges the institutions and individuals who support Windy City Harvest’s work to advance a more sustainable, inclusive, and healthy food system.
