October 2020 Meeting

Filed under Meetings

On Thursday, October 22nd at 2pm we will have Kim Hartman (one of our favorite presenters) from Countryside Flower Shop, Nursery and Garden Center join us for a fun program on how to make beautiful fall center pieces and put some spark into your outdoor containers.  Kim will also bring several of her creations that will be raffled off to the lucky winners! 

We will have cake and coffee and hopefully a beautiful day.  Bring your own chair, dress for the weather and if it’s a little chilly bring a lap blanket.  

The event will be cancelled if we have rain. 

If Kress Creek Farms sounds familiar it’s because this is the area and the barn where we held our potting parties for the last several years. The city of West Chicago has turned this farm area into a beautiful park with lots of space for social distancing and a pavilion where we will meet. Come early and explore the many lovely areas of this newly developed gathering place.

Kress Creek Farms houses an 18 cage Disc Golf Course, Chicago Bears playground and a trail system.  Located along Joliet Street on the south side of the city, Kress Creek Farms has rolling hills, native landscaping, and a small pond for catch and release fishing.

September 2020 Meeting

Filed under Meetings

We will have a casual, socially distance meeting this month for Members only!

Lunch at Sunny Acres Farm

Come and join your West Chicago Garden Club for lunch on Thursday, September 24th at 12:30 pm, at the newly renovated beautiful Sonny Acres Farm located on North Ave. between Prince Crossing and Rt. 59.
The Farm now has a restaurant with plenty of outside social distance seating where you can order from the menu and enjoy your complimentary lunch.

We will also have some fun raffle prizes to make your day even more enjoyable, (if you are hanging on to some items that you were going to bring to the silent auction in November you may want to bring them with you and we will add them to the raffle).

We hope everyone will attend this event and support your local business. 

See your September Newsletter for information on how to RSVP for this event.
