Backyard Front Yard: Interview with LaManda Joy


If you are interested, this weekend is the 5th annual plant/bake sale. The Peterson Garden Project will have seedlings, seeds, a “soil salon” and more. The event is B.Y.O.B. – bring your own bag. All proceeds support PGP programs like our very own Vedgewater Community Garden (above photo).

“Our vegetable and herb seedlings are locally-grown in certified organic soil and are hand-selected for growing well in Chicago. Heirloom favorites will be available, as well as a few disease- resistant tomato and basil varieties! We’ll also be selling our book, Fearless Food Gardening in Chicagoland, seeds from Seed Savers Exchange, worm castings, Purple Cow Activated compost, Cascade Minerals soil booster, Corona tools, Grewbie kits, Neptune’s Harvest liquid fertilizer, PGP t-shirts, seed potatoes, Seed Keeper Company 5-  and 10- gallon Burlap Girdles (great for growing potatoes!), and of course- delicious,  locally-  baked goods.

Not sure what plants and seeds to buy? Click below for a list of what we’ll be offering, and we’ll have Expert Gardeners on hand during the sale to help you choose your new favorites!

BYOB! (Bring Your Own Box) – we ask that you please bring your own bags, boxes or trays for carrying your seedlings home.
