Urban Agriculture

Demonstration Gardens

The project is aligned with current developments in Chicago and cities across North America where plans for sustainable local food systems include urban agriculture are in place.  It provides interactive, real-world educational tools for students, faculty, staff and community members. 

Other locations of Urban Agriculture across the Loyola Campuses:

The many examples of gardening and urban agriculture at Loyola have begun a reawakening of the importance of understanding and protecting our local and global food systems.  As a result of a student project in the STEP: Food Systems course, the Urban Agriculture Demonstration Gardens grow more than 15 varieties of vegetables and herbs which are donated to a local charity, A Just Harvest, a soup kitchen in Rogers Park.
