Urban Farms: A Great Source for Herbs

It's been wonderful to write for The Herb Companion, Natural Home and GRIT. I'm excited about my herb cooking feature on quick pickling in the September issue. To date, I've written over 1,000 published articles, including features on gardening, green living, travel, beauty, healthy cooking and good eating.  You can reach me at lstarart@gmail.com.

When interviewing Chef Bruce Sherman for the July 2009 article, "Herbal Escape: North Pond Restaurant in Chicago", I was impressed by his reliance on herbs. Although he and his staff regularly pluck a rich, fragrant variety of herbs from the restaurant's own kitchen garden, he also relies on local farms for outstanding in-season herbs and other produce.

One of his suppliers is City Farm, just a short drive from his famous Lincoln Park eatery and the Chicago's Magnificient Mile. An ardent supporter, Chef Sherman is lavish in his praise of the organic offerings from this green oasis which thrives on only one acre by the intersection of Division Street and Clybourn Avenue. You can buy fresh, organically grown herbs at the City Farm farmstand, located on its site which borders the diverse neighborhoods of Cabrini-Green and the Gold Coast.
