Seed Swap & Giveaway

Edible Evanston is proud to host our 5th-annual seed swaps and giveaway.

Dozens of vegetable and flower types and hundreds of varieties, including unique heirlooms and locally saved seeds are available for free to encourage people in Evanston to grow their own food and plant for pollinators.

Grant News: A food forest is in our future!

Edible Evanston is excited to announce the awarding of our fourth grant from the Evanston Community Foundation, funded in part by the Green Communities Fund and Redbud Fund of the Evanston Community Foundation.

This funding will provide $5,725 in seed money to transform the Eggleston Anniversary Orchard into a demonstration Permaculture Food Forest as a community resources with educational opportunity for residents. Planning has begun, and we hope to include the community in design charrettes.
