We are a coalition of NGOs, DuPage Environmental Commissions & Committees of DuPage, and everyday citizens. Sustain DuPage organizes quarterly meetings to ensure cohesive vision and communication between the DuPage sustainability movement's various stakeholders. In order to comply with the Open Meetings Act, we use our facebook page to communicate about our upcoming events.
We grow food communally (all responsibility and abundance is shared equitably) in Wheaton, Illinois with regular hosting of cooking nights.
We are transforming seven acres of mostly buckthorn (a plant species out of balance with our local ecosystem) into an oak woodland planting which will provide maximum native biodiversity and food for humans and other lifeforms.
We host regular reading group discussions focused on sustainability literature like books, articles, essays, and poetry. We hope to hone our critical dialogue skills to strengthen our community understanding and progress.
