The plant sale raised more than $1000 for our Adopt the Public Way grant program. Speaking of the Adopt program, congratulations to our spring grantees!We awarded 7 regular grants and 2 youth program grants this round, from Devon on the south end to Rogers on the north end. These grantees will beautify corners, parkways, parks, and kid-friendly spaces throughout the community.
For those who missed the spring deadline but have the perfect public space to improve, fear not. We will accept another round of Adopt the Public Way applications in the fall.
Next up: Tuesday August 2nd, The Buzz About Beekeeping
Plan to join us in another beautiful Rogers Park backyard to hear all about bees and joys of beekeeping. Watch this space for more details.
We have a full calendar of activities and want to share a preview of the many wonderful events in the works.
This year's programs will take us around the neighborhood and into the home gardens of several members and supporters. Here is an overview of theRPGG calendar, with details on upcoming events on our events page.
