February 2018 Meeting

Posted at 2:55 pm under Uncategorized

Our speaker this month will be Cindy Anderson who will be speaking on “A Native Gardens for Four Seasons”.  She describes this program as:

Native gardens are of increasing interest to home gardeners, but often they have a reputation of being messy or weedy. However, with a little bit of self-reflection about what is important to the gardener in their garden, a natives planting can be beautiful (in the eye of the gardener) and provide a benefit for ecosystem biodiversity. In this talk, I guide participants through choosing plants for a four-season garden, some tips on sources and a primer on design principles. This presentation discusses how to think about what “native” means to the individual gardener, why using natives is important and some examples of gardens that feature native plants. The talk concludes with a collection of native plants suitable for gardens here in northern Illinois.

Please join us for our monthly meeting on February 22nd at the Faith Community Church, 910 Main Street, West Chicago.  The meeting begins at 7:00pm, but we have refreshments starting at 6:45pm.  Guests are always welcome to come check out the club at one of our meetings.
