Smart Farm LogoCreated in 2008, the Smart Farm is an educational gardening initiative in Barrington. Volunteers tend to their community gardens on the Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital grounds and at Ron Beese Park and give 100% of their produce to local food pantries. Adults, children, and students who participate learn about our agricultural heritage, organic gardening, the slow food movement and best practices for living “green,” sustainable lives.
