THE ROGERS PARK 
  GARDEN GROUP

The power of gardens to build communities through 
beauty, camaraderie and involvement.

Join us on June 11th for Spring Plant Sale.

If you would like to volunteer to help at the sale, please contact us.

Signs of spring came early and then retreated but it looks like we're back on track: crocuses and snowdrops popped up around the neighborhood, with daffodils and tulips not far behind. With these harbingers, our thoughts turn to outdoor activities in the community. To that end, we will focus our efforts on two major activities this spring.

First, Adopt the Public Way grant applications are now available on our website. RPGG is proud to support neighbors who tend a slice of parkway, traffic circle, park, school or other public space to beautify our community for the benefit of all. See below for details.

Second, we are thrilled to announce that our annual plant sale, Flowers to the People, is scheduled for Sunday, June 11. This will coincide with the second weekend of the Glenwood Sunday Market. Details about this much-anticipated event will be shared in our next newsletter, but mark your calendars now.

You may notice our scaled back newsletter, website and schedule. This will be the final year of Rogers Park Garden Group as we know it. We are grateful to the many, many people who have been involved with RPGG over the past ten plus years--as meander hosts, grant reviewers, or the critical volunteers who have made this work possible and, more important, fun! Yet without enough members to sustain the coordinating committee and regular programming, it is time to wind down, have a little more fun, and get to work in the dirt.
