Monday, September 14   7PM   MONTHLY MEMBER MEETING


Our next monthly gathering will be in September when we welcome guest speaker Nick Michaud as he presents a talk on "Ornamental Vegetable Gardening". Combine the utility of growing fresh produce with the beauty of a well-designed garden.  Learn the history and elements of kitchen gardens or potagers.

This class will teach how to combine vegetables with herbs, flowers, and fruit to create a productive and ornamental garden.  It will include a discussion on interplanting, companion planting, and decorative plantings as well as a list of recommended cultivars for our region.

The night is also our annual vegetable tasting following the presentation.  Bring your favorite home-grown vegetable or any vegetable related appetizer to share. We have a great lineup of guest speakers and events this fall so join us anytime at our monthly member meetings. All are invited and welcome.


LOCATION:  CrossLife Evangelical Free Church, 431 W. Austin, Libertyville IL
