560 Harris Road, Grayslake, IL, USAUpdate: We've met our initial goal to purchase tree protectors, thank you! We're collecting additional donations to support the replacement of trees and shrubs that we may lose as a result of our record-setting fall temperatures and rainfall. We're grateful for your continued support of this project! A “food forest” includes a wide variety of fruit, nut and berry plantings where all help each other thrive, and where the harvest benefits both humans and animals. Over time, the forest regenerates itself and the soil below, in part through falling leaves and fruit, and in part via foraging animals, while capturing carbon and storing it into the soil. Prairie Wind Family Farm and the Liberty Prairie Foundation collaborated this spring to purchase, plant and deer-fence over 400 seedlings on the Prairie Crossing Farm. Now we need to protect the young trees against winter cold, spring weather variations, summer sunscald, and the little creatures that chew the bark above and below the coming snow. Can you help with a donation? Can you help by volunteering to install the tree protectors? We would be most grateful, and your donation is tax deductible.$4,355.00 donated of $4,000.00 goal
Havana and Pinar del Rio, CubaDozens of senior teachers have joined our efforts to make and distribute COVID-19 protection masks to the communities of Havana, Pinar del Rio, Sancti Spiritus, and Santiago de Cuba. These health brigadistas are donating old sheets and writing encouraging notes to accompany masks given to nursing homes, orphanages, elders, store clerks, and other frontline workers. Masks cost just $1 each to make and deliver! Our goal is to give away 20,000 or more masks by June 30th. We are a Community. We are Conscious.

Sangamon River Corridor Reserve Flood Damage
With the money we raise, the Foundation will fully repair the trail by hiring a contractor to do what is necessary to repair the levee while maintaining the natural floodplain hydrology to the site. This could include bringing bentonite clay and rock to key locations, repairing breaches when they occur, and installing seep collars to protect the culverts from future flood damage.
