Garbage Hill Farm 
(McKinley Park)

Garbage Hill Farm is the project of Winnipeg native Jen Delos Reyes. The farm’s name sake comes from her hometown’s Westview Park which was built upon a garbage dump and is lovingly known as "Garbage Hill."

Garbage Hill Farm is located in Chicago Illinois McKinley Park neighborhood at SIDE by SIDE, a future residency for BIPOC arts and culture leaders and artists to rest and rejuvenate. The farm’s CSAA (Community Supported Art/Agriculture program) is what provides the funding to support the artist residency.

The farm is committed to organic regenerative farming practices, closed loop production, and the elimination of single use plastics in distribution. We grow food and make household cleaners and beauty products that can be refilled onsite.

The farm is home to chickens, birds, and twin goats, Bucky and G.O.A.T.
