Strengthening access to fresh, local, sustainably-grown organic food for people in need.

Get Involved in Walnut Grove

Getting involved with Walnut Grove Vocational Farm is a rewarding opportunity for everyone involved.  Everyone is welcome and no helping hand will be turned away.  This Spring, teams will be meeting at 33600 Pearl Street Kirkland IL, 60146 starting at 10am to work on the farm.

Things you can bring with you:

  • Clothes you don’t mind getting dirty
  • Gloves
  • Shovel
  • Rake

There are always opportunities to get involved with the farm!

Come help us re-purpose! We are seeking help to construct three greenhouses, restore a natural native prairie, and create a tree farm featuring walnut trees. In the upcoming years, we will construct a garden stand to sell our produces, restore our barn, and develop a livestock pen. In the future, we will develop a classroom located in the barn where classes and workshops can be held. There is plenty of work that needs to be done and everyone can help. More information about work being completed in the upcoming seasons will be listed soon.

Working side by side with DeKalb County Community Garden staff members provides a safe and educational volunteering opportunity for people of all ages.  For more information on how you can get involved with Walnut Grove please contact Dan Kenney by clicking here.
