Locavores gather at farm site

Locavore activists with The Talking Farm held a potluck dinner Tuesday to celebrate their new mini-farm site at Twiggs Park in Evanston.


The outdoor classroom and demonstration site, set up in partnership with the city, provides about 3,000 square feet of growing space.


It’s a temporary location for teaching techniques and promoting the merits of locally grown food while the group negotiates for a larger more permanent location.

In addition to the plants, the site features a rustic fence built of twigs by Evanston furniture builder Tor Faegre.
