About Us / Gary Comer Youth Center Garden History: Gary Comer Youth Center has introduced urban agriculture to Chicago's South Side neighborhood. GCYC contains 3 gardens : an educational garden across the street, a rooftop garden, and an herb garden located near the building's entrance. All 3 farms are maintained by the youth who attend GCYC. The gardens serve as a classroom, where students learn about agriculture. The culinary program run by Chef London allows the youth to harvest the gardens and cook for the center's attendees, staff, and visitors. Goods from the garden are also sold to local restaurants and at the GCYC farmers market.
