Buy organic plants, seeds, books, tools, compost, fertilizer, and more — everything you'll need to get your edible garden growing. All proceeds from the sale benefit PGP's free education programs. All Organic! Our plants are all certified organic and selected by our team to provide unique varieties that are easy to grow in Chicagoland to ensure your success. Plants are grown just for us by Chicago-favorite Montalbano Farms. Visit bit.ly/PGP_PlantSale18 for a list of seedlings and seeds that will be available. Two Sales Are Twice the Fun! The Cool Crops sale on April 21 and 22 features plants that don’t mind a little spring chill (Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, salad greens, herbs, and edible flowers). We’ll have everything you need for your first planting, whether you’re gardening with us or in your own backyard. For the Hot Crops sale from May 4 to May 6, we’re turning our attention to summer favorites: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, basil, and more. In addition to seeds and seedlings, the May sale will also include a baked goods with sweet and savory treats donated by local chefs, home cooks, and our Community Cooking School instructors. Compost and Organic Fertilizer, Tools, Advice, and More! Purple Cow Organics and Midwest Trading are providing awesome compost this year to help boost your garden yields. We'll also have organic fertilizers, seeds, tools, Grewbie kits (everything you need to lay out your square foot gardening grid), PGP t-shirts and hats, and seed potatoes. PGP will also be selling our book, Fearless Food Gardening in Chicagoland, and expert gardeners will be on hand during the sales to answer questions and get you growing in the right direction. Support Community Programs! All proceeds from these sales go towards supporting free programs and partnerships in our communities. That includes scholarship plots at each of our gardens, our Grow2Give program that grows and donates organic veggies to local food pantries, free garden education, and free cooking classes for youth, refugees, and seniors at our Community Cooking School. Both plant sales are BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag or Box). Please bring your own boxes, bags, or other containers to transport your goodies home. ### Peterson Garden Project is a 501c3 Chicago-based nonprofit whose mission is to recruit, educate and inspire everyone (seriously) to grow and cook their own food.
