New Gardener Program May 2016 update

Did you apply to participate for our New Gardener program?

Perhaps you recently applied to build a garden and receive a mentor or to be a mentor to others in Edible Evanston’s New Gardener program.

Thank you for your interest in participating! Rest assured, we received your application and you will be hearing from us. After two months of planning and a solid month building gardens for others, our team has not had a chance to review and reply to our new applicants. (We also have been anxious to spend a bit of time in our own gardens!)

We'll be determining schedule and criteria soon for the next phase of the program. Then we'll contact all applicants and all the generous mentors who have volunteered.

Thanks again and thank you for your patience!

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers

We had dozens of people come out to help construct beds and work on the new gardens built for 13 families and organizations in April, and we could not have done all this without you!

Here are a few of them with the program participants:
