Food Growers Network

The GardenWorks Project empowers, educates, and promotes organic suburban agriculture to improve the wellbeing of our community, the environment, and families facing food insecurity. We support all gardeners in their efforts to grow and prepare food for themselves and their neighbors in need.

By becoming a member of The GardenWorks Project Food Growers Network, you’ll have access to gardening resources through our Suburban Agriculture Resource Center (inside Gallery 200, 103 W. Washington St., West Chicago). We welcome you to partner with us and the DuPage County gardening community to start or expand your home or community garden. In return, we ask that you donate surplus vegetables to an area food pantry.
