Welcome to Seeds of Knowledge
Seeds of Knowledge, Inc. is a nonprofit that was established in 2015 by Namrita Narula. Seeds of Knowledge instills the seeds of community, compassion, and creativity in Highland Park, Illinois.
Namrita started Seeds of Knowledge to help feed families in her community. She deeply wants every individual to have access to fresh food, not just processed food. To date, Namrita has donated over 2,000 pounds of fresh produce to the Moraine Township Food Pantry and collected over $21,000 in monetary and goods donations for Seeds of Knowledge.
In March of 2015, Namrita partnered with the Highland Park Community Nursery School. She installed an outdoor garden and hydroponic garden towers in each of their classrooms. The children maintain the gardens, eat the vegetables, and learn firsthand where food comes from. On a weekly basis, she visits the school to work with the students on activities related to gardening and nutrition.
To combat food insecurity, she worked with the mayor and city council to bring her “Feed The Meters, Feed Your Neighbors” idea to fruition. She installed three brightly painted, refurbished parking meters that serve as donation stations in Highland Park, and uses the change to purchase produce for the Moraine Township Food Pantry.
