Glencoe celebrated a bountiful harvest at the Glencoe Community Garden’s third annual TomatoFest on Sunday, Sept. 14. 

The garden showed off its rows of organic produce, including, of course, its variety of tomatoes. Everything built and harvested at the garden is done solely through volunteer work, and 100 percent of its harvests are donated to food pantries in Chicagoland, including those in Winnetka, Northbrook, Highland Park and Chicago.
