SAGE (Schools are Gardening in Evanston) is an outgrowth of the Dawes School Edible Garden Project which began in 2004. The gardening program now exists at several District 65 schools giving students the opportunity to plant, grow, harvest and eat fresh foods. Surplus food is donated to local food pantries. SAGE is overseen by the Evanston Environmental Association and the SAGE Steering Committee.
There are now 16 gardens in the Evanston school system.
