About The Organic Gardener Ltd.

The Organic Gardener Ltd. (TOG) creates beautiful and productive organic edible gardens. Since 2005, we've built well over a thousand vegetable gardens in and around Chicago utilizing a full line of customized services - design, installation, seasonal maintenance, and education.

Based in the North Shore suburbs of Chicago, our team's reach extends to a wide variety of clients throughout the Midwest region. We work with families to create suburban and urban home gardens in yards and unique spaces. And we partner with non-residential groups like corporations, schools, restaurants, and non-profit organizations to craft public food production projects with accompanying educational programming.

Our approach is rooted in the idea anyone, anywhere, can grow their own food. Each TOG project connects us to the larger "good food" movement growing throughout the nation. Come grow with us!


Build Crew

May 2020 - August 2020 Chicago, IL
ā€œI really liked working with a small crew of people to accomplish tasks. The company i work with designs, builds and maintains backyard organic gardens for clients. In summers previous, I had worked with the gardening team, visiting clients gardens and learned lots about growing veggies. It was cool to work on the build crew this summer building the gardens and we did lots of cool projects and builds all over. My favorite builds were definitely the rooftop gardens in the city. It was awesome to work in both sides of the business and be able to see everything from start to finish and appreciate it. Finishing projects like this made me feel accomplished.ā€


June 2019 - August 2019 Northbrook, IL
