We enjoyed Bob Erlich's April program on butterflies and butterfly gardens.
Butterfly friendly plants are always appreciated at the June Plant Sale!

June 7th Preparation Meeting at 6:30 p.m.,
June 9th, 10am to 12pm Sale. EP Public Library
It's time for our summer fundraiser once again. On Thursday, June 7th, club members will meet and bring garden donations and we will get them sorted and priced and then set up the room for the plant sale on Saturday morning, June 9th. Our sale benefits the library as well as our club, and the library always has some special raffles and activities for the event. The community enthusiastically comes out and supports us, and neighbors have enjoyed the plant sale over the years. We have gotten many young gardeners interested in the topic! See you at the June 7th meeting for our plant sale prep session!
Join us at 6:30 pm on June 7, 2018, in the
EP library's downstairs conference room.
Plant Sale tradition since 2011
The inaugural sale and auction was held in a member's yard.
Since its beginning, the garden club has had a spring/summer plant sale to raise funds for the group and provide some fun doing it! Our first sale took over Cindy Kamp's yard, garage and driveway. It was so popular that we did it again the next year. The members-only auction was a fun and raucous activity.
During the third year we moved to the library with its better accessibility and climate control! We've held it there ever since. Our meeting on June 7th this year will be a set-up for the sale. Members, we depend on all of you to stock the sale shelves. Our fundraiser also helps the library and is appreciated by the community.
Let's get started!
Thanks to the Evergreen Park Public Library and their director, Nicki Seidl, for their unwavering support!
