Eicoff returned to City Farm for it's second year supporting Chicago's “City in a Garden." The urban-farming initiative transforms vacant land into productive farmland, which translates into jobs, green space and fresh produce for the city.
We learned about the new beekeeping efforts and how Chicago restaurants like Alinea, Frontera Grill, the Signature Room and many more partner with City Farm to bring fresh, organic produce to patrons.
Despite the threat of rain, Eicoff stepped up it's efforts this year with double the volunteers. The many rows of carrots and lettuce are now free and clear of weeds thanks to the team.
