Designing your container garden
Chicago Grows Food uses 1 gallon, 2 gallon, 5 gallon, and 10 gallon bags. Depending on what you want to grow will impact the size you want. Check out the Home Garden page to learn about what grows best.
It is important that the soil used for produce is safe and healthy. Chicago Grows Food orders from a local business for both soil and compost. The soil resources page offer testing options and workshops on healthy soil.
Depending on the size of the fabric grow bag used, will influence whether you start the plant from seeds or utilize a seedling (baby plant).
Each Grow Kit and Home Garden receives an Education Booklet. Contents are provided on the Grow Your Groceries Grow Kit Resources Page.
