EGA Spring Newsletter and May 14th Plant Swap

Check out the new EGA Spring Newsletter. It’s packed with information about upcoming EGA events, including the annual Yard Sale and Garden Walk. Speaking of events, be sure to come to our first event of the year: the Spring Plant Swap on Saturday, May 14th from 10:00 am until noon in the backyard at 1420 W. Glenlake, weather permitting.

Spring is a wonderful time to dig up & divide many perennials like ferns & hostas or most any other plant you no longer have space for. Extra gardening paraphernalia can find a new home with your gardening neighbors. Even if you don’t have anything to share, please come & meet fellow gardeners and we always have extras that need a home. For more info contact Kim at 773-368-3949 or kaulas@rcn.com. The rain delay alternate date will be Sunday, May 15th, at the same time & place.
