Thank you for your interest in applying to be matched up with a Garden Mentor in 2017! If you are new to growing food, a Garden Mentor can help you during your first season, starting before your garden is installed in May during the BLITZ.*
Each Mentor is trained by VGI and connected to other Mentors who are passionate about spreading garden knowledge. We do our best to match gardeners to Mentors who live nearby to encourage neighborliness and community.
Due to a limited number of available Mentors, we cannot guarantee that you will be matched with a Mentor. We also offer a series of gardening classes that can help guide you through the gardening process.
Mentors volunteer their personal time to help new gardeners become successful and confident food growers. We ask that you be respectful of their generosity by committing to completing the full season of visits. There are 5 visits throughout the season, starting in May and ending in October. The timing of each visit is flexible and will be worked out between you and your Mentor.
Please fill out the application and we will contact you if there is a Mentor available for a match. Thank you!
*While it is not required that you order a BLITZ garden from us to receive a Mentor, we highly recommend it - our gardens are filled with healthy, organic soil just about guaranteed to grow anything! BLITZ gardeners will be first priority when it comes to receiving a Mentor.
