Transforming the Hood for G.O.O.D.

(Growing Our Own Destiny)
Urban Farm
to Fork is a
way of life

Our mission is to transform the hood for G.O.O.D. using urban agriculture as a tool for community engagement, empowerment and employment.

With a single seed, not much bigger than the period at the end of this sentence, we hope to rebuild and restore South Oak Park to a healthier place where all families have equitable access to the resources they need to thrive.
Starting with a few plants in the backyard, our vision has grown to showing communities the answers contained in the soil.

    The warm healing spices of garlic, cumin, cinnamon, coriander, turmeric, and chili powder are the perfect combination for the cooler months.  The warmth of these spices will fill our homes and bodies as we get cozy with our big blankets, warm fires, and soft sweaters.

    The star of this hearty winter dish are the sweet potatoes. The tender sweetness of the potatoes add a balance with the richness of the spices. The potatoes add quality protein and substantial quantities of vitamins A, B, and C, while the pungent spices stimulate the immune system and increases circulation.

    Double the recipe if feeding a crowd, or save and meal prep for leftovers during the week. Leftover chili are delicious on tortilla chips garnished with fresh onion, olives, lettuce and guacamole. Leftovers can also be made into Shepherd's Pie or enchiladas.
