Blossom Boys open new shop on 103rd in Beverly neighborhood
One of our favorite programs in years past has been flower arranging with the Blossom Boys, Ryan Steinbach and Steve English. They closed their flower shop in 2016 after eight years in Beverly. This September they decided to bring it back and have a new shop on 103rd Street just east of the Rock Island train station. They have renovated a storefront at 1810 W 103rd and are planning a gallery type setting with local artist participation, "fair trade" trunk shows, and, of course, their beautifully creative flower arrangements. Large events and smaller celebrations will be a focus. Gifts will be available for the upcoming holidays. This shop will be a bit larger than the original store and the guys want to hold more arts and crafts classes and events.
Here comes fall
a honey of a drink
October 4th at 6:30 p.m., EP Public Library
Anna Stange, presenter
We all want to save the honey bees and this October we present one of the products bees make possible. Anna Stange, a Blue Island resident, is a gardener, musician, environmental activist, canner, and folksinger, just to name a few of her activities. She is going to educate us on making mead, an alcoholic drink prepared from water, honey, yeast, and selected ingredients by individual preference. Mead is more closely aligned with wine than beer. It is one of the most ancient libations found in history.
Join us at 6:30 pm in the library downstairs conference room.
The Garden Club of Evergreen Park welcomes the Blossom Boys back to the area!
