Celebrate Earth Day 🌎 in the Garden This Weekend

This weekend brings two (!) opportunities to spend time in the garden.

Join us tomorrow (Sat. 4/20, 10am-noon) for our regular garden stewardship day! It will likely be a pretty low-key group as many gardeners have commitments at other Earth Day events around the city and region.

Then on Sunday (4/21), Waters Elementary is hosting a big Earth Day event from 10am-noon! Activities will include a plant ID scavenger hunt, stations to learn about environmental topics around Chicago, guest speakers, and stewardship opportunities. This event is open to the entire community so feel free to invite anyone who you think would be interested!
