SPRINGFIELD — Illinois Stewardship Alliance is aiming to add 100 new members during it’s second annual membership drive.

Illinois Stewardship Alliance, a statewide nonprofit that works to increase the use of local food and promote sustainable agriculture, will kick-off its membership drive on May 15 at the Old Capitol Downtown Farmers’ Market in Springfield, IL.

“Members are what make Illinois Stewardship Alliance such a vibrant and exciting organization to be a part of,” Wes King, Illinois Stewardship Alliance interim executive director, said. “Members are everyone from farmers to chefs to consumers. We rely on their input to decide what topics to address and where to focus our work. Our members’ energy and dedication to good food and stewardship of the land is unrivaled. We’re hoping to build on that by at least 100 new members during this drive.”

Anyone who joins during the drive, which lasts through June 30th, will be eligible to win dinner for two to one of Illinois’ premier farm-to-table restaurants or luggage from Patagonia.

Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Illinois Stewardship Alliance can join by visiting or by calling 217-528-1563.
