Organization - The Talking Farm Environment


Organization Details:

The Talking Farm
Last updated on August 30, 2013

Logo

The Talking Farm's mission is to cultivate healthy, sustainable communities by supporting the production and appreciation of locally grown food. Our Howard Street Farm grows food for sale to the community, as well as hosts educational and knowledge-sharing activities that emerge from the operations of an urban, organic farm.

History:
In 2005, the Network for Evanston’s Future formed the Evanston Food Policy Council. Food connects everything – health, basic sustenance, environment, family, energy resources, transportation, economic development, pleasure, economic and social justice, security, and community. In discussing these issues within the community and at local events, the notion of growing organic food on a meaningful scale within our community soon emerged as an obvious and key component of a healthy food system. And so was born the vision of The Talking Farm. We found a land home in 2011 at 3701 Howard Street in Skokie, and have since been developing the Howard Street Farm - our vision is taking shape!
