Annual Fundraising Plant Sale

We held our annual plant sale at Warren Park on a sunny and breezy day. We would like to thank Eva Mannaberg for organizing the sale, Dianalynn Schilz, the Warren Park Manager, for providing space and setup and, most important, the NGS members and members of the community who dug in their gardens to provide the plants.

The sale was an overwhelming success.



Houseplant Swap

Member Garden Parties

We hosted a free houseplant swap open to NGS members and the community at Warren Park. We had a very good turnout and many people went home with a new "favorite" plant.


A Spring Visit to Emily Oaks Park in Skokie

Adult Program Coordinator, Karen Taira, led a tour featuring spring flowers called  ephemerals and spring blooming trees.

A Visit to the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences

We visited the school for their Flower and Garden Show put on by the students and faculty. The theme was Gardens around the World. The students made structures that might be seen in various countries and planted gardens that might be seen in those countries.The designers were available to talk about each country's history and culture. In addition, we visited the barn and learned about the various animals they care for.  This is a very  impressive group of students who really do show promise for the future.
