Gardening Events in Rogers Park

Here's a reminder from the good folks at the Rogers Park Garden Group. Also, don't forget to check their upcoming events on their beautiful web site. Don't miss a terrific shopping opportunity to get great deals on plants, yard materials, patio furniture, garden-themed items, and bid on items donated by local businesses and artists (start that holiday shopping early!) - and it all benefits RPGG community gardening projects. The RPGG will also unveil our 1st (hopefully) annual RPGG calendar and note cards featuring gardens and landscapes of Rogers Park, photography donated by local artist Martha Meyer. To make the sale a success, however, we need your donations. What can you donate? Perennials, house plants, pots, tools, furniture, art, baskets, books - any garden-themed item that you don't need any more but that someone else might fancy. We have lots of plastic pots on hand if you need them for plants you'd like to dig up and divide. This year we are offering a "free for the taking" section that will include common day lilies and hostas, which can be dropped off the day of the sale. Garden of Treasures Sale & Fundraiser Sunday, September 28, 11 am - 2 pm Jarvis Square The deadline for donating plant items for the Garden of Treasures Sale & Fundraiser is Thursday, September 25. Email the Rogers Park Garden Group now at to let us know what you have coming!
