Local is best when it comes to shopping for garden plants, so mark your calendars for May 20 and 21 when members of the Lincolnwood Garden Club of Evanston will again offer plants from their own gardens for sale at the Evanston Garden Fair.
Back after a two-year hiatus, the Evanston Garden Fair features homegrown perennials plus a selection of herbs and vegetables ready to plant or pot up in your own yard. Look for the friendly people with their plants in Independence Park at the corner of Central Street and Stewart Avenue (one block west of Green Bay Road). They’ll be there to answer questions and provide advice on your selections.
The Garden Fair will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 20 and 21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
Proceeds will be donated to local school and community gardens in the form of scholarships.
For more than 90 years, the Lincolnwood Garden Club of Evanston has promoted the beautification of Evanston by working to improve the community’s environment through horticulture. The club has created and maintained civic gardens, collaborated with community partners like Evanston High School’s Geometry in Construction Program to install gardens and funded projects at more than a dozen Evanston schools, the YWCA, Evanston Public Library, Random Acts of Flowers and other local nonprofits.
