Northtown Garden Society
Dave and Hank
On Tuesday, May 2, 2023, members of the Warren Park staff headed by DianaLynn Schilz, Park Manager, honored the volunteers of NGS along with other members of the community who donate their services to various activities of the park.
NGS volunteers maintain the plants in the Green Room at the Warren Park fieldhouse as well as gardens at Warren Park and Indian Boundary Park. NGS volunteers also plan and manage educational meetings at Warren Park, an annual plant sale, a garden walk and tours of community natural areas.
After a lunch, NGS Board President, Eva Mannaberg, assisted by the 24th Chicago Police District Commander, Joseph Brennan, held a raffle of houseplants.
As part of our program to support the community, we donated $200.00
to the "Ag School" on March 25, 2023, following a tour of the facilities.
is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.
