    NEW! Heirloom Produce Available for Sale
    Available each month at Pioneer Days are fresh, locally grown produce (some of which are heirloom varieties) from the gardens at EP!C of Peoria. Heirloom plants are varieties which grew in gardens long ago. The seeds have been preserved to reflect the wonderful quality and flavor of those plants.

    A variety of produce will be sold depending upon availability. An example of an heirloom plant is Cherokee Purple, a variety of tomato that is rose-brown and full of flavor. Often heirloom plants carry colors and taste not familiar to modern plants, such as multi-colored beans or reddish-purple carrots.

    EP!C provides training to adults with special needs and operate a wonderful garden program for their clients who are raising produce from seed to harvest.
