We’re Growing New Gardeners!

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

Edible Evanston’s New Gardener program is currently closed to new applications. We have received quite a bit of interest already this year and are in the processing of revamping and changing the program offerings.

Be sure to look at our Education area for classes which may help teach you about gardeners, and our resources tab which is packed with lots of material from classes we have taught and handouts we offer.

You can also post gardening questions on our Facebook page.
