On July 20, 2020, Walter Mannaberg, beloved husband of Eva Mannaberg, the NGS Board Chairman, died at home at the age of 94 years. Walter, a quiet and unassuming man, was a WWII veteran serving his adopted country with honor. For more information on Walter's fascinating life and war experiences, click  here.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, All Programs and Activities are cancelled until Further Notice. 

Thank You for visiting and please stay safe.

You can still take a walk and look at gardens in your neighborhood and, of course, work and enjoy your own garden

We are also providing funds for the school gardening programs at Waters and Kilmer schools. The Kilmer School Project is sponsored by Big Green Chicago, an organization building learning gardens in Chicago Public Schools and creating the single largest school garden network in a US city.
