Rogers Park Garden Group meeting on 10/30

The last meeting of the season will be happening on Tuesday, October 30 at 7 pm:

WHEN A COMMUNITY GARDENS TOGETHER with JEANNE FELKNOR

Jeanne Felknor is founder and president of the East Village Block & Garden Club. Jeanne has been gardening the parkways of East Village (area between Ashland and Damen, Division and Grand) since 1999. She and her group, which includes about 40 children from the ages of 4 to 18 have gardened approximately 200 parkways in the neighborhood. Awarded Mayor Daley's Gardener of the Year in 2004, Jeanne now gardens on behalf of the neighborhood full time. It all began one day when she was picking up trash outside her home. We will also vote on the 2008 community garden project. Come hear an inspiring presentation and help the RPGG prepare for next year!

Location: Rogers Park Presbyterian Church, Fellowship Room (2nd floor), Greenview & Greenleaf.
