What WE Are Doing to Accelerate Climate Action in Evanston
Demonstration Food Forest
The Edible Evanston Eggleston Park Food Forest demonstrates how utilizing permaculture principles to grow perennial crops can efficiently and effectively sequester carbon in soil and trees, while simultaneously feeding people.
Our Produce Sharing Program helps individual local growers get their excess fresh produce to people in need through Evanston food pantries. This effort improves resiliency by providing access to healthy food for economically vulnerable populations.
Edible Evanston teaches individuals about sustainable food growing techniques to allow more people to successfully grow their own healthy, local food. We also teach about the connection between growing food, a healthy planet, and human health.
