April 27, Saturday 9: AM – 7: PM
Join Peterson Garden Project April 27-28 and May 10-11 for our annual Edible Plant Sale geared
toward urban and small-space gardeners and offering items you won’t see anywhere else in
Chicago. Buy organic plants, seeds, books, tools, compost, fertilizer, and more —everything you’ll need
to get your edible garden growing. Proceeds from the sale benefit PGP’s free education programs.
This year’s sales will be held at our sister organization, City Grange, Chicago’s new year-round organic
garden center. This social enterprise expands the mission of PGP by providing a wider selection
(including natives, pollinator friendly plants and flowers) as well as hardgoods, gifts and more. City
Grange is also offering a job training program to youth looking to have a future in the garden industry.
All Organic! Our plants are all certified organic and selected by our team to provide unique varieties
that are easy to grow in Chicagoland to ensure your success. Plants are grown just for us by local
organic growers including Montalbano Farms.
Two Sales Are Twice the Fun! The Cool Crops sale on April 27 and 28 features plants that don’t
mind a little spring chill (Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, salad greens, herbs, and edible flowers).
We’ll have everything you need for your first planting, whether you’re gardening with us or in your own
For the Hot Crops sale from May 11 and 12, we’re turning our attention to summer favorites: tomatoes,
peppers, eggplant, basil, and more. In addition to seeds and seedlings, the May sale will also
include baked goods with sweet and savory treats donated by local chefs, home cooks, and our
Community Cooking School instructors.
Compost and Organic Fertilizer, Tools, Advice, and More! Purple Cow Organics and Midwest
Trading are providing awesome compost this year to help boost your garden yields. We’ll also have
organic fertilizers, seeds, tools, Grewbie kits (everything you need to lay out your square foot gardening
grid), PGP t-shirts and hats, and seed potatoes.
Both plant sales are BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag or Box). Please bring your own boxes, bags, or other
containers to transport your goodies home.
