Green Bay Garden Blitz 2019 Mentorship Application


*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.

I commit to five visits with my mentor. *
I understand that my mentor has volunteered his/her own time to meet me at five 30-minute meetings and is not expected to meet with or advise me more. *
I will do my best to meet my mentor at each scheduled appointment and will contact him/her at least 24 hours in advance if I need to reschedule. *
I understand that my mentorship may be terminated if I do not follow program guidelines and expectations. *
I grant the Green Bay Garden Blitz and its partners (including UW-Extension, New Leaf Foods, City of Green Bay, and Brown County) the right to use, publish, or copyright my image and/or comments for educational programs, websites, and promotion of the Blitz and its partners. *
Is there anything else we should know before we match you with a mentor (gender preference, etc.)?
