Bethany Retirement Home Garden


When a call was put out to help plant gardens at the Bethany Retirement Home,  4950 N. Ashland, 3 NGS members volunteered their services. Dorothy Bird and Frank and Nancy Jane Lauren helped  design, obtain plants and plant the gardens in the courtyard. Their help was greatly appreciated by Bethany managers and residents.







NGS News

NGS Volunteers Honored


The NGS members who gave of their time in 2016 were honored at a dinner in January. Without their help we would not be able to care for our gardens in the parks, offer educational programs or host fund-raisers. Their work is greatly appreciated.
