Peterson Garden Project to Host Organic Edible Plant Sale

Mar 28, 2018 08:16PM

The annual nonprofit Peterson Garden Project (PGP) Organic Edible Plant Sale will include cool crops on April 21 and 22, and hot weather crops from May 4 to 6. This year is better than ever, with all organic plants and a new location in the heart of Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood. The sale is geared toward urban and small-space gardeners with items not found anywhere else in Chicago, including easy-to-grow organic plants, seeds, books, tools, compost, fertilizer and more.

      All proceeds support free community programs that include scholarships for garden members, the 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 the Community Cooking School. Attendees can buy the book Fearless Food Gardening in Chicagoland, and expert gardeners will be on hand to answer questions.

      The May event will include a bake sale with sweet and savory treats donated by local chefs, home cooks and Community Cooking School instructors.
