ANNUAL JAILHOUSE GARDEN HARVEST CEREMONY SET FOR FRIDAY
Garden doubles in size, adds greenhouse, triples year-round participants at Cook County Jail

A massive expansion of the garden on the grounds of the Cook County Jail will allow for more than 100 non-violent detainees to earn gardening and landscaping job skills while they are incarcerated, with dozens of those detainees set to be recognized with certificates of completion on Friday, September 9, 2011.


The annual harvest ceremony is set to take place at 11 a.m. Friday at the jailhouse garden, which is located just behind the jail administration building at 3026 S. California St.
This is the 18th year for the garden program, which last year added a 1,500 square foot greenhouse and this year more than doubled in size, from 14,000 to 30,000 square feet. That expansion has allowed the program to go year-round and allowed the number of non-violent participants to increase from 30 to 100.

This marks the first year that all produce grown started as a seed in the greenhouse. Representatives from Charlie Trotter’s and The Publican, which purchase food from the garden, are expected to attend the ceremony, along with sheriff’s office staff.

Charlie Trotter’s is a restaurant at 816 West Armitage, Chicago 60614

Culinary Philosphy of Charlie Trotter’s
Chef Charlie Trotter’s cuisine originates from the finest foodstuffs available. A network of over 90 purveyors provide the fresh, healthful ingredients which inspire him to create flavorful masterpieces. From the naturally raised meat and line caught seafood to the organic produce, every component of each dish is the most pure available. Indiana bobwhite quail, petite greens from Farmer Jones, heirloom tomatoes from Illinois, North Dakota buffalo and Hawaiian gindai are just a few of the products that arrive each day from which Chef Trotter crafts the daily menus.

— From the official Charlie Chotter’s restaurant website

The taste of free-range and organic products is so much better than the alternative. It is also good to know that you are eating unadulterated food and supporting farmers and growers who are directly connected with the land.

— Charlie Trotter

A Trotter’s To Go at 1337 West Fullerton Avenue has a Chef’s Case with food preparations that change daily based on ingredient availability — including seafood, spit roasted meats, vegetable and grains as sides or as center of plate offerings.

Trotter’s to Go also has a Cold Case with packaged items which are ready for “pick up and go” including salads, sandwiches, soups, desserts and a wide variety of beverages.

The Publican is a restaurant located in the West Loop at 845 W Fulton Market, Chicago, IL 60607.
