Englewood Land Access Project

In Englewood, Food:Land:Opportunity is supporting projects designed to increase the number of Englewood community members who are eligible and qualified to access and farm on land within the Englewood Urban Agriculture Zone. Specific strategies to support urban agriculture enterprises include investigating cooperative business models that facilitate land tenure agreements, and identifying appropriate parcels for farming. In 2019, NeighborSpace will collaborate with Grow Greater Englewood to develop a demonstration farm site along the Englewood Trail and four other sites in the area, leasing land from the City of Chicago to provide access for these farm enterprises.

This project supports these strategic goals:

  • Test new models for securing access to land.
  • Grow networks of farmers.
  • Incentivize innovation to address systemic problems.
