About the hosts
THE EVOLVED NETWORK

was founded to honor Sebastian White's father and aunt who passed away unexpectedly in the spring of 2020. Under Sebastian's direction, TEN has since made its mission to offer unconditional care through a holistic and therapeutic approach, to build a foundation for youth through their creation of a farm-to-table dining experience. It's a means to comfort the soul through their service, and acts of radical hospitality.


The Evolved Network offers free programming that provides a therapeutic space for youth through wellness, farming, financial literacy, and culinary training. 272 lives impacted this year.

THE GARDENEERS

Mission: Cultivating customized school garden programs.


Gardeneers works with Chicago’s South- and Westside schools and communities to contribute positively to the larger food system. We do this by supporting youth in our school garden and farm programs to build their own knowledge, skills, and habits to become leaders who care for themselves, their environment, and their communities.


Gardeneers see their work as social and racial justice work in the form of school garden education. Their hope is that one day every human has easy access to fresh, nourishing foods and all communities are healthy and sustainable.
