    Garden Stewardship/Garden Together

    The Garden Together hourly session can be used for on-site or virtual visits to garden along side you, to work through some garden planning, or to an answer questions. Want to learn from the experts? We love to partner with Chicago-area gardeners to teach sustainable gardening methods, design strategies and to share new ways to see and interact with our environment. 
    Learn to garden in your garden. This is an hourly rate and great for those who:
    • Want to build a condo association garden community
    • Wish to care for a home garden
    • Want to host a garden party
    • Hope to start a school pollinator garden
    • Are interested in seeing their garden and landscape in a new way
    Sessions can be monthly, weekly or bi-weekly and focus on the basics of native gardens and gardening for environment. After booking, we will contact you to schedule a day and time that works for you. Cost is $100/hr.


    Garden Design and Implementation

    Not really the DIY type? No sweat —NBN can provide everything needed to design, plan and plant a new stunning habitat garden for you.

    Our process will start with an in-depth site visit where we can meet and talk about what you hope to accomplish. Are you looking to increase butterfly habitat? Planning to provide a waystation for migrating birds? Want to grow a cutting garden or make a place to enjoy morning coffee? We love to dream and explore the possibilities, and can help you realize your garden goals.

    We also offer Seeding Design services that can be implemented throughout the year. This is a great approach that can save money and solve some difficult planting challenges.
