ENRICH Urban Farming and Gardening

ENRICH Urban Farming and Gardening is tied intimately to the village of Maywood. We work alongside the Maywood Park District and community leaders to address the lack of community access to produce. This group is a great fit for students with an interest in community health, farming or gardening, and for those hoping to become more involved in Maywood. ENRICH was started by a Stritch student in 2012 not only to fill the need for access to healthy food in Maywood, but also to create a beautiful space for the community to care for and enjoy. 2020 marks the 9th summer of planting and harvesting produce during the months of April through October. Volunteers can help manage the community garden and assist with programs that take place there. Currently, other groups such as the Wellness Wizards (run by medical students) and I Can Grow! (run by dietetics students) use the garden for educational purposes. We are open to new ideas and programs as we strive to partner with the community to utilize this beautiful space to its fullest extent.
