Northbrook Village Hall Demonstration Vegetable Garden

In early 2022, the Village approved a contract agreement with local Northbrook business The Organic Gardener to construct and maintain a demonstration vegetable garden between Village Hall and the Library. This “Grow Northbrook” project is one of the Board’s selected top priorities from the Climate Action Plan, to foster community while growing healthy and sustainable food. Harvest is donated to the Northfield Township Food Pantry.


The Organic Gardener hosts open gardening sessions free to residents to educate on best practices for eco-friendly gardening. Register at
