April 28th Meeting: A Well-Rounded Garden

Filed under Meetings

Our April speaker will be Landon Gibbs, horticulturist at Cantigny Park.  His presentation will focus on creating “A Well Rounded Garden.”  Some gardeners want more native plants, some want more annuals,  and everyone wants color in every season.  Landon will provide us with ways to build a landscape that  gives us both habitat and color throughout the seasons using shrubs, perennials, natives, and annuals.

We are planning to hold the March meeting in person as usual this month. If there are changes due to the ongoing pandemic, we will notify members via email and calling-post. Masks are now optional and we will be having refreshments before the meeting.

Meeting Location: St Andrew Lutheran Church NE Corner of Prince Crossing & Geneva Road.

Meeting Time: 6:45PM Refreshments – 7:00PM Business Meeting – 7:15PM Program

March 24th Meeting: Foraging for Wild Edibles

Filed under Meetings

Our March speaker, naturalist David Brooks of Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg, will be presenting “Foraging for Wild Edibles.” Foraging for wild edible plants requires knowledge and skill possessed by our ancestors but lost to most of us. This introduction will show you how, when and where to gather a variety of highly nutritious and delicious wild plants as well as provide recipes and other preparation tips. Suggestions and resources for improving your wild plant identification skills will also be available.
