everyone deserves fresh produce

How does our program help?

 

In 2018 we empowered and educated 368 new individuals so that they can learn the gardening skills necessary to provide their families with healthy meals. Our clients, all DuPage County residents who rely on food pantries, received a 4’ x 8’ raised bed garden, soil, compost, seedlings, seeds and gardening tools, and one-on-one coaching by an experienced home vegetable gardener.

 

We also promote self-sufficiency and good stewardship of the Earth by introducing our new clients to composting, seed starting, and garden vegetable preparation and cooking.
