New Gardeners

Building gardens and providing mentors to encourage and support new local food growers

Be a Mentor to our New Gardeners!

Experienced vegetable gardeners wanted!

Whether you have been successfully vegetable gardening for just a few seasons, are a Master Gardener, or are someone with tons of experience growing food on a home-gardening scale, we hope you will join our network of mentors. Sign up today!

We’re Growing New Gardeners!

Join our home gardening group and receive raised beds in your own yard!

Edible Evanston wants to help you build your own garden. We’ll provide materials for two raised beds, soil, and some initial plants and seeds.
You will also receive workshops, a manual for educational training, plus your own personal garden mentor. Applications are open for Fall 2019.

If you are an Evanstonian who has thought about having your own garden but do not know how to take the first step, apply to let us help you grow that “green thumb.” Low-income families are encouraged to apply.
