THIS MEETING HAS BEEN CANCELLED..
On March 16th, long-time member, Nancy Seyfried, died following an extended illness. She served as the NGS treasurer for many years and will be remembered for her meticulous bookkeeping, pleasant demeaner and love of gardening. We miss you, Nancy.
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.

In January, we hosted a dinner to honor our many volunteers who help with all of our community service and programming activities. We couldn't do it without them.
Stay tuned for the 2020 dinner photos.
In October, the Green Room at the Warren Park Field House received a major makeover:
We wish to thank Eva Mannaberg, Nancy Wieting, Lucy Radycky, Judy Ishii and Ginny Davis for their work.
NGS member, Judy Ishii, painted a colorful barn quilt pattern on wood which was used to cover an unused exhaust fan. Her artistic skills are greatly appreciated.
