Annual Potluck Held Nov. 7

One of the joys of being a part of the DuPage Organic Garden Club is the friends we make with whom we share that one commonality - to be good to the Earth via organic methods. So, when garden club members aren't learning about organic gardening and related issues, it's nice to have some time to socialize. Every year we have a potluck which gives members time to catch up and talk about how their garden grew that summer, what worked and what didn't and what they plan to try next year. This year's potluck was held at the Belmont Village, a senior living center in Carol Stream, which very generously allows the club to use one of its social rooms. Members had time to chat it up and enjoy some delicious food - and learn about what's next with the DuPage Organic Garden Club. We hope you'll join our club, enjoy our many educational programs, make some new friends - and perhaps take part in our potluck next fall!

The DuPage Organic Garden Club will be meeting at 6:30 at the Belmont Village on Geneva Road, just east of Main Street in Wheaton, this Thursday, May 26. Two members will demonstrate how to prepare and present artful creations out of food items. “Edible Containers” are easy and beautiful…think unusual centerpieces! Their presentation will result in several arrangements that will be taken home by members of the audience! Hope to see you there!
