LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. – State Rep. Mary Edly-Allen, D-Libertyville, visited the Radical Roots Organic Farm in Libertyville on Earth Day to learn about their conservation practices to reduce soil erosion and nutrient pollution.
“The opportunity to tour a local farm and learn about their initiatives to care for the soil while harvesting organic products helps me learn how I can help support local sustainable, forward-thinking businesses in our community,” said Edly-Allen. “The efforts of local farms are a reminder that our contributions and work as a community today have long-lasting effects for tomorrow.”
To advocate for environmental wellness Edly-Allen is hosting her Environmental Issues Citizens’ Advisory Committee on Thursday, April 25 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Libertyville Civic Center, located at 135 W.

“As a member of the House Energy and Environment Committee, I strive to work towards the state’s goals that will create good paying jobs right here in Illinois,” said Edly-Allen. “I invite anyone interested in learning about these issues and how they affect our community to join my Environmental Issues Citizens Advisory Council.”
