The Green Earth Institute

The Green Earth Institute is a nonprofit organization established in 2002 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.

On our 60 acre farm located in south Naperville, Illinois, a suburb 35 miles west of downtown Chicago, we grow over 40 crops of nutritious, delicious organic vegetables, and sell them through our community-supported agriculture (CSA) program. For children we offer gardening and nature appreciation programs, and for adults we offer information and instruction about nutrition and environmentally sustainable practices for home, yard, and garden.

Really good food—there's just no substitute.
Do it for it for your family.
It's never too late to start eating better!
