Eggleston Orchard to become Food Forest

Edible Evanston (now a project of Citizens’ Greener Evanston) is excited to announce the awarding of its 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 resource with educational opportunities for residents. Planning has begun, and we hope to include the community in design charrettes.

Watch for dates for these planning sessions, as well as workdays in Eggleston Park. To get involved, attend Edible Evanston’s next monthly meeting on June 8 at 7 p.m. at the Civic Center in Rm. 2402.
