Trip to Chicago Flower and Garden Show
Coming Saturday, May 9th
It's the Plant Sale's anniversary! Our event takes place on May 9th from 10 am to 2 pm at the Evergreen Park Public Library. The past 4 years have been great, from the early gatherings at Cindy Kamp's house to our recent events at the library. This year we are again partnering with the library to put on our annual fundraiser. We will have a large and diverse group of plants for sale, all of which will be donated by garden club members. Our members have been busy since last summer choosing plants in their gardens for this event. Garden club members have also been busy making handmade greeting cards for customers at the sale. The library staff is creating spring goody baskets to raffle. And there may be some surprises in store. Most plants are under $5. Proceeds benefit the Garden Club of Evergreen Park and the Evergreen Park Public Library Foundation. Come and find something new for your garden. Or get Mom a living gift for Mother's Day that she'll enjoy all summer.

5 Easy Ways
to Save the Planet
Prairie Godmothers shared some knowledge about things we can do to contribute to the health of our environment. From recycling plastic and paper to introducing native plants into our gardens to using "found" items in creative ways, this presentation gave us lots to think about and plenty of ideas to try.
