The Chicago Botanic Garden's Summer Events program for 2012 has been release. There are a lot of activities and events on schedule, but being a frugal gardener this piece of the press release jumped out. I thought I would share it with you all.
Plant Giveaways – Wednesdays through Sundays, continuing through October 7
In the Regenstein Fruit & Vegetable Garden, volunteers share information about the featured plant, which changes monthly, and encourage visitors to plant a seed or seedling to take home to their own gardens. A flyer with care information and a recipe is included. Hours are from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information visit www.chicagobotanic.org/familyprograms/dropin or call (847) 835-5440.
