About the Event 

Hinata Farms is a 1/8 acre Japanese heritage farm located on the southside of Chicago. Founded in 2020, Hinata Farms’ mission is to provide locally-grown and culturally-relevant produce to the Japanese and broader Asian community in Chicago. Owner and Head Farmer, Rachel Nami Kimura, will talk about her motivations, farming practices, and what she’s learned from the first season.

 

About the Speaker

Rachel’s interest in growing was sparked in 2009 when she got involved as a volunteer to help transform an empty city lot into the Altgeld-Sawyer Corner Farm. Since then, through numerous classes, independent study, volunteering, and experimenting with plants both indoors and in backyards, she got her fix for growing. After about ten years of growing as a hobby, she decided that it was time to pursue growing as a career. In 2019 she completed the Windy City Harvest Urban Farming Apprenticeship where she worked on the McCormick Place Rooftop Farm and received a Certificate in Sustainable Urban Agriculture through the Chicago Botanic Garden and a Certificate in Sustainable Urban Horticulture through the City Colleges of Chicago.
