A nonprofit organization formed in 2002, the Green Earth Institute’s mission is to promote nutritional health and environmental sustainability. Using our organic farm as a demonstration and learning center, we grow healthful vegetables in an earth-friendly way and educate about nature, nutrition, and caring for the earth.
Each summer at the farm we provide educational programs for children and families. Year-round we offer farm tours and speakers for adult, college, and high school groups. During spring, summer, and fall we offer educational programs for school and scout groups. Our annual Green Earth Fair on the first Sunday in May features speakers, exhibits, and vendors on environmental and nutrition topics as well as farm tours, children’s activities, food, and musical entertainment.
Located in Naperville, Illinois at the McDonald Farm.
