Home Northwoods Food Project
The Northwood's Food Project is a non-profit organization who's purpose is to increase Cook County's long term food sustainability and self reliance by eating and growing locally produced food. Some of the ways to accomplish this is through:

kids-gardening-015

  • Developing county-wide linkages / communications between the public, for-profit and non-profit food sectors.
  • Develop community garden space that can be utilized by market gardeners, low-income residents and food shelf users that includes education on northern climate growing techniques, seasonal eating, low tech water usage, composting, food preservation, root cellaring and cooking with unprocessed foods.
  • Provide education / training / marketing to potential food micro-enterprises for use of locally grown food products.
  • Provide food based internship and educational opportunities for local youth.
  • Conduct research projects to develop uniquely suited vegetable & fruit varieties that do well in our northern climate.
  • Develop an evaluation system for long-term viability and sustainability of the Northwood's Food Project.

Northwood’s Food Project is actively seeking community garden and market gardening growing spaces in Cook County. If you are willing to donate or give funding towards the purchase of community gardens spaces, please feel free to contact anyone on the Board of Directors:
