Registration for New Gardener Memberships at Vedgewater Community Garden

The Peterson Garden Project opened their new gardener membership this weekend for the pop-up Victory Garden just north of Edgewater Glen at Vedgewater.

Neighbors interested in gardening with Peterson Garden Project do not need any prior gardening experience. The mission of the project is to teach people how to grow their own food, so they are looking to recruit ‘grewbies’—their term for people new to growing food – as well as experienced gardeners.

Garden plots are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. You can register for a garden membership here.

Mark Your Calendar: The Edgewater Glen Fall Plant Swap Will be Saturday, September 8th, 2018

Edgewater Glen’s Fall Plant Swap will be held Sat. Sept. 8, 2018 from 10am until 12pm, weather permitting, in the backyard at 1420 W. Glenlake (6100N).

Fall is the best time to divide iris’, day-lilies, peonies, plus share any other gardening paraphernalia: like books, containers, etc. that you no longer need.

Come and meet your gardening neighbors. Even if you don’t have anything to share, we usually have leftovers that need a home.
