Celebrating Innovative Initiatives that Bring Local Foods to Illinois Communities
Join Illinois Stewardship Alliance in recognizing the creative, innovative and pioneering local food activities in Illinois.
Why “Golden Beet” you ask? Well, awards are usually shiny and used for recognizing exemplary achievements. We think the brilliant hue of golden beets with their unique standing in the world of edible plants represents the perfect symbol for honoring the innovators in Illinois. A symbol for relishing the activities in Illinois that are paving the way for the development of local food systems. Food systems that feed us and feed our soils. Fresh. Healthy. Delicious. Community building and economy stimulating food. Nominate a person, organization or business doing something fresh in your community. To find out more visit www.ilstewards.org
