*Please note: This program's main focus is providing mentors for community members with no previous gardening experience who have purchased a garden box through the Green Bay Garden Blitz. The deadline for applying for a mentor is 4/1.
Thank you for applying for a garden mentor for the 2019 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 (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 April. Priority is given to those with the least gardening experience.
All mentors and mentees are also encouraged to attend a mentorship dinner, date TBD, to meet each other and participate in a brief beginning gardening class.
