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


Contribute to the Food Forest and Community Orchard

This spring and summer DCCG is planting a community orchard at the Outreach Campus on North Annie Glidden, and also planting one of the first food forests in Illinois. If you would like to purchase a tree or berry shrub to help in this effort and leave a legacy, for you, your family, or in memory of a loved one, all contributions are appreciated.

Fruit and nut tree donation options of $65 to $300

Business, individual, family, or corporate sponsorships available
