I've finally seen it - the first sign of spring! Wicker Park
Garden, at 1425 N. Damen Ave., will be holding its plant sale on
Saturday and Sunday, May 7 and 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission
is free; payment for any plants you purchase should be in the form
of cash or check. This sale is rain or shine! The event will be
held on the West side of the field house, or inside the Wicker Park
Fieldhouse if there is rain.
In addition to the plant sale,
several workshops will be held on Saturday for a fee. On Saturday
and Sunday, you'll also have the opportunity to bring your own
container to fill with soil and plants, or get your pruners
Every Saturday from 10-1 until
November, residents have the opportunity to come out and tend to
the Wicker Park Garden. For more info, you can contact
the Wicker Park
Garden Club's website, I learned that there is a
"Wicker Park Kids Grow" series every spring and fall. Kids sign up
for free programming on Thursdays where they'll create a project
for Wicker Park, and one for themselves to take home. We've missed
the start for the spring series, but I'll be checking this out in
the fall! For now, I'm going to dream about warm weather and my
