NEIU Ground Garden Membership 2017 (3)

February 14, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - February 21, 2017 @ 7:30 pm CST

2017 is going to be a great gardening season! 

We’re glad you want to garden with us in 2017! Whether you’re returning for another great year or are joining us for the first time, we would like to remind you that PGP is a membership organization and we need everyone’s participation to sustain and maintain the gardens.

Before you register, please make sure you can spend 2-4 hours over the course of the 2017 season helping in the general garden areas. If you can’t make a scheduled PGP workday, that’s ok. There’s always plenty to do! You can sign up for our volunteer list here. The gardens are only as good as the volunteers that make them great. If you’re one of the awesome ones who went above and beyond this past year, thank you! If not, please consider our request before signing up for 2017. 

Garden membership is $85 for the 2017 growing season. Gardens open April 22 and close November 6Membership includes some classes, some supplies/toolsaccess to water, garden mentoring (such as Expert Gardener Nights) and your 4’x8′ plot. All gardeners MUST attend a mandatory membership/orientation meeting in order to garden with us. 

At this time, only one plot per family will be accommodated. Please do not try to register for more than one plot.

Following registration, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive a confirmation email within a few minutes of registering, please check your spam folder. In your confirmation email you will receive information to  sign up for a mandatory membership/orientation meeting. We will have many meeting dates available between mid-March and mid-April. If you do not attend a membership meeting/orientation session, your registration fee will be refunded (minus $25 nonrefundable processing fee) and your garden plot will be released to the wait list.

If you have any questions during the registration process, please email [email protected].

Happy Gardening!


All of us at PGP
