Climate plan work starts next month

The Network for Evanston’s Future now has an exciting opportunity to partner with the City of Evanston to develop the Evanston Climate Action Plan. In many ways, this is the fruition of the Network’s previous work in sustainable development.

The planning process will begin on Nov. 13 and come to fruition with a presentation of the Climate Action Plan to the community at the Network’s Earth Month Event, tentative scheduled for May 4 at the new green Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation.

'The Talking Farm' gets organized

Newly formed by the Evanston Food Policy Council, The Talking Farm is not-for-profit organization dedicated to sustainable urban agriculture practices in Evanston.

All Evanston residents are invited to take part in growing locally and healthy produce. A community farm with an environmental learning center to grow organic produce for local distribution, teaches agriculture, food production and beneficial entrepreneurship, and through a working model, fosters conversations about how we can create a healthier and sustainable food system.
