Reducing Yard and Garden Maintenance
Watch the Date! - 2nd Thursday
Looking forward to spring...
Our upcoming March 2017 meeting will include a program by Art Clay World of Oak Lawn. One of their talented instructors will teach us how to paint a ceramic garden pot, garden frog, or other item of our choice. Our projects will then be fired in a kiln at their site and returned to members. Items can be used indoors or outdoors.
There will be a small fee to cover the cost of the item.
Thanks to the Evergreen Park Public Library and their director, Nicki Seidl, for their unwavering support!
Members: If you have not paid your annual membership - dues are $20.00/year. Invite your friends. Guest fee is $5.00, which can be applied to membership dues. We have a fun year planned. See you on 12/8.
An Enjoyable November Program
Gardening offers us a respite from the demands of our everyday life. Not only do we enjoy working in our gardens, but also the time spent relaxing in our gardens.
Joel Barczak from Blumen Gardens in Sycamore, Illinois, discussed ways to reduce yard and garden maintenance. Who would like to have more time to relax? Joel says care in selecting garden plants is a major factor in maintaining them later. He suggests studying a plant's habits and growth patterns before you make the choice.
