Locally raised produce enables less reliance on distant food sources and can provide produce with greater nutritional benefit, improving the health of vulnerable populations. Our New Gardener Program facilitates the efforts of families to grow their own food, providing experienced guidance and classes and seeds to get started. We give away thousands of packets of seeds free at our annual “Seed Swap.”
Support our program by donating to Climate Action Evanston and earmarking your donation to support the Edible Evanston Program. And if you wish you can further earmark your donation to one of our initiatives.
