My dh had an interview this week in Galesburg, and I'm just looking for anyone with knowledge of the community, especially with regards to crunchiness, things like health food stores, local farms and produce, etc. I searched the archives and turned up only one thread about Galesburg...

I'm a homeschooling mom of three. There don't seem to be any homeschooling groups in Galesburg, at least that I can find online. We're actually Waldorf-inspired. I have an 8-yr-old, 4-yr-old, and 3-month-old.
I got nothin' for Galesburg, but Monmouth and Macomb are in the area, so the contact people for those groups might be able to direct you to the info you need.

and there used to be an organic farm out in Berwick:
