We have a multi-faceted Education Program. Educational workshops are typically a part of each monthly volunteer workday, or are given at other locations including the Crown Center, Library, and City Parks. Topics have ranged from planting gardens to explaining permaculture, growing mushrooms, making herbal teas, and building better soil. Our Food Forest includes educational signage available to visitors year-round.
We have a May Bee Fest, and a family-oriented Annual Fall Festival in October. Tours and workshops are given for school groups, ranging from kindergarteners to Garrett University classes.
Edible Evanston welcomes the community to get involved by learning about what is being grown, helping plan next steps, and helping to maintain our portion of what we have called Evanston’s Eggleston Eco Acre. Volunteers have included faith organizations, Boy Scouts, school and university groups, as well as interested individuals.
