Two community gardens in the area are having fundraisers this Thursday, May 26th 2011. The Peterson Garden's Swing Into Spring event features live music, dancing and special MC Mike Nowak, host of "The Mike Nowak Show" on WCPT.
Community Garden Fundraisers This Thursday
That same evening the Forest Park Community Garden is hosting their very first fundraiser for their garden that features a silent auction and raffle prizes.
Both community gardens have gardeners that are active in the online gardening community in Chicago and people who I consider to be friends. If you can check out the links provided and choose between one of the two ticket prices both groups have made available.
Update: Someone's ran their automobile into part of the fence at the Peterson Garden today. The member who uploaded the photos jokes that they know where the fundraising money will go to.
