RPYSN Application for Garden Plot

Welcome to the Rogers Park Yard Sharing Network! We are a network that strives to build community through the creation of shared gardening spaces, potlucks, and neighbor to neighbor education, and more local fresh food right here in Rogers Park. But we are no ordinary community garden group. Due to the lack of open public space, we have sought commitments from homeowners in the neighborhood to give us access to space in their backyards.

You are filling out this application because you are interested in joining or returning to the network as a gardener. Once accepted, gardeners will be offered a garden plot that is available and close to them and will be responsible for the care and upkeep of their garden after it is built. LETS GO will be available for training, support, and advice. As a gardener, you will benefit from the harvest of the fruits and vegetables you grow throughout the season.

    Membership Fee

    We are introducing a “Pay What You Can” membership fee for our garden plots this year to help cover the cost of maintaining the Yard Share Network. This includes helping to pay for soil and lumber for new gardens, sharable garden tools, food for events and workshops, and minor printing costs. Because we understand that we all have different abilities to pay, no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds. Benefits of membership include: -Garden plot (roughly 4x8 feet) for a year -Discounts on seedlings at the LETS GO Chicago plant sale -Free classes and workshops -Free phone or in-person consultations
