“Healthy Food For Hungry Families”

GreenTown Waukegan is a group of citizens—working under a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation—to grow healthy food, without herbicides or pesticides, to feed low income families. We also promote the concept of urban farming and help to plant other community gardens. Our vegetables and fruit are grown in raised beds, and we will be using a recently finished hoop house to extend our growing season!

We focus on the following: 

  • Food Production For Low Income Families
  • Educational Programming & Workshops
  • Community Involvement & Engagement
  • Raised Beds Programs
