The Truck Farm looks like a regular pickup truck until you look in the bed.
Filled to the brim with soil and sprouting plants of all types, this truck is far from normal. This one travels to schools and farmers markets around Chicago with education in mind
"We prioritize food desserts in Chicago. A lot of the areas the kids may have never seen a garden before," said farmer Shari Brown.
On this cloudy spring day, The Truck Farm lets people see it, touch it, and teaches that gardens can be made in almost anything, including egg containers and orange juice cartons.
Brown works with a non-profit group called Seven Generations Ahead.
"One of our main goals of Fresh From The Farm is to educate children about where there food comes from and talk about wellness," she said.
The Food Truck plans to reach more than 100 schools and farmers markets before the end of the growing season. Brown wishes they could reach even more.
"It’s so awesome for them to learn where their food comes from and take ownership over that cause that’s going to be a way to keep healthy for their lives and really impact the way they think about food," said Brown.
