First Victory Garden Distribution

produce on table

On Sunday, July 5, 2020, we conducted our first Victory Garden distribution.  From our greenhouse and member plots, we harvested a variety of crops: kale, Swiss chard, herbs, radish greens, purslane, lettuce, and tomatoes , collecting 12.28 pounds of food to feed four families.

Since then we have harvested each Sunday collecting a total of 49.46 pounds of food and served 23 households! The next harvest and distribution will be tomorrow (August 2nd)

Recognizing the pandemic could result in food insecurity, PHCFarm organized a team to grow veggies for our community! Several members have offered up space in their boxes and members are tending to them to help fulfill our Victory Garden mission to grow and distribute extra produce to help our community members who are facing food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

New Compost Drop Off Hours

Beginning this Sunday, May 24th, Prospect Heights Community Farm will roll out a partial re-opening of Food Scrap Drop Offs for the community! 


During this PAUSE period, PHCF seeks to restart, within our limited capacity, the incorporation of your food scraps into our compost system as safely and efficiently as possible. Towards that end, drop offs will be accepted differently than usual – received by a volunteer at the (closed) front gate of the garden with a face covering and appropriate social distancing required. 


What: Food Scrap Drop Off
When: Sundays 10 – 12 pm Where: On the outside of the (closed) front gate.
How: Mask or face covering required for drop off.
