Saturday, September 18th, 1:00 PM, Warren Park Parking Lot
Garden Society Plant People have found a wonderful way to
meet and greet each other & share plants and plant knowledge
while adhering to the Chicago Park District Covid guidelines for public events.
We transformed the Trunk or Treat idea into a Car Trunk Plant Exchange!
Bring outdoor and indoor plants & clean usable garden related items.
If you are bringing plants to exchange:
Drive to the eastern most corner of the Warren Park parking lot.
Park in every other space.
Have your exchange items in your opened trunk. Or, have a picture for future pickup.
If you would like to participate, please register via e-mail to Eva Mannaberg and provide your name, address, phone number, e-mail address and a brief massage.
The plant exchange is open to the public.
This is a free event, however, feel free to leave a donation for NGS with the members seated at the information table. Hope to have you join us.

On Monday, May 17th, we honored Nancy Seyfried. former NGS member and treasurer, who passed away in March of 2020. Nancy was remembered for her meticulous bookkeeping, quiet manner, wry sense of humor and love of gardening. Nancy loved daffodils so a plaque designed by NGS member and artist, Nancy Wieting, was placed in the Rose of Sharon Garden at Warren Park where daffodils were planted in her memory last year.
In addition to many NGS members in attendance, we were quite pleased to welcome Nancy's brother Bob and her sister-in-law, Barbara, and 2 of her co-workers from the Chicago Botanic Garden library to the service. Nancy volunteered for many years at the garden's library.
is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.

Judy Ishii and Johnnie Woods
Mary Oellrich retired as NGS Treasurer and Sheila Mayol retired as the Rose of Sharon Garden manager. We would like to thank both of them for their service. It is greatly appreciated.
Sigrid Schmidt has assumed the role of Treasurer and Board member and Judy Ishii has taken over the management of the Rose of Sharon Garden in Warren Park. We thank them and wish them the best.
In early August, Judy Ishii, the garden manager, and two NGS members, Johnnie Woods and Renee Lundy, weeded in the garden, moved some plants around, dead-headed the roses and edged it. The roses have been blooming beautifully this summer.
