Let's make local happen in 2022! Sending a HUGE thank-you for supporting our annual fundraising drive.

We convene experts in culinary medicine to propel a new food culture, motivate clean energy leaders to move ahead on a net zero carbon economy, throw the best and biggest and funnest local food party in the Midwest at our annual Harvest at the Commons, and more. Join in!
