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.

EGA Continues to Promote Beautiful Parkway Corners

In our efforts to beautify our neighborhood, we’d like to continue to encourage residents to adopt our very-visible parkway corners as opportunities to showcase attractive seasonal plantings. For 2022 we’re again offering 2ea. $100 grants towards pre-approved parkway corner locations to reimburse the first $100 spent on soil amendments and plants.

We particularly appreciate neighbor Gabby D., who has taken advantage of this program to beautify Hood and Glenwood’s northeast and northwest corner parkways (pictured). Plant swap treasures are also featured in these displays, but it’s mainly Gabby’s timely watering, weeding, deadheading, etc., of these spaces that keep them looking so good. Please thank her if you see her working her magic on these spaces!
