2021 Mentorship Application
***COVID-19 may affect program availability and logistics. We will communicate any changes as soon as possible.***

*Please note: Only registered 2021 Brown County community gardeners and New Leaf Garden Blitz customers are eligible to participate in this program through Brown County Community Gardens. The deadline for applying for a mentor is 4/15.

Thank you for applying for a garden mentor for the 2021 growing season! Having a garden mentor is a fun and rewarding way to gain the skills you need to become a successful gardener. Please read and complete the following form.

Mentors are community volunteers who self-identify as experienced gardeners. Mentors commit to meeting with their pairs five times over the gardening season (typically May through October), and we ask that mentees make the same commitment. The date and time of each meeting is flexible and is arranged between each mentor and his or her mentee.

Please also note that, due to the number of available mentors, we cannot guarantee that you will be matched with a mentor. If you receive a mentor, you will be notified in late April or early May. Priority is given to those with the least gardening experience.

This program is made available through the Brown County Community Gardens Program.
