Bethany Retirement Home Garden
When a call was put out to help plant gardens at the Bethany Retirement Home, 4950 N. Ashland, 3 NGS members volunteered their services. Dorothy Bird and Frank and Nancy Jane Lauren helped design, obtain plants and plant the gardens in the courtyard. Their help was greatly appreciated by Bethany managers and residents.
NGS Volunteers Honored
The NGS members who gave of their time in 2016 were honored at a dinner in January. Without their help we would not be able to care for our gardens in the parks, offer educational programs or host fund-raisers. Their work is greatly appreciated.
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.
