Helps grow food for the Family Focus Evanston food pantry and the Teen Baby Nursery at Infant Welfare Society of Evanston (IWSE), both located in the historic Family Focus building at 2010 Dewey.
Foster Street Garden educates youth in programs at Family Focus and the Infant Welfare Society of Evanston about growing food in partnership with The Evanston Food Exchange and Northwestern University.
During the spring, summer, and fall seasons, children in the program learn about planting, urban agriculture, and entrepreneurship. They also learn how to cook with the produce they have grown.
The food that they harvest is sold at the Evanston Farmers Market in the summer.
The garden is located at the far North end of the Family Focus parking lot
