Locally GrownLocally grown is a program developed by the University of Illinois Extension with support from JWCC and other partner organizations to promote a sustainable local food system.  This program creates awareness and understanding between farmers and consumers encouraging a more sustainable food system.

More than 60 local food businesses and initiatives are included in the Locally Grown newsletter. The newsletter is intended to serve as a link between local food producers and local food consumers. Local food resources include farmers markets, fruits and vegetables, meat, eggs, butchers, lockers, organic foods, Christmas tree farms, baked goods, honey, syrup, CSAs, pumpkin patches and wineries. A PDF version of the locally grown newsletter can be found at Eat Fresh, Eat Local 2012
