Rogers Park Garden Group will hold its 3rd Annual Garden sale. Last years sale had a silent auction and many contributors. If you have plants to donate, want to join the group, or simply want to meet those with similar interests, then stop by. Unfortunately, the group chose to locate this sale where near it meets at the Prebyterian Church on Greenleaf. Past sales have been in front of Charmers on Jarvis. The Charmers location is a much wiser choice. (maybe next year?)

Usually, items are eventually discounted, but you may want to arrive early to avoid what has been picked through. The Garden Sale helps support locally sustained gardens at the Metra Station, among other places in the Rogers Park Community. The Group meets at the Presbyterian Church at 1434 W. Greenleaf near Greenview.

Perhaps this post could be corrected. Nowhere on the RPGG website or in our communications have we called this the 3rd annual sale. This is a spring plant sale (never officially held before), and in addition to our annual Garden of Treasures Sale & Fundraiser. Additionally, the RPGG is still holding it's annual Garden of Treasures Sale & Fundraiser in Sept. at Jarvis Square. That information can be found here:
and on the RPGG home page there is this information:
Start thinking about items to donate to the RPGG Garden Sale & Fundraiser. It's never too early to start thinking about items you may be ready to part with that can be donated to the RPGG for the annual sale & fundraiser, to be held this year Sunday, September 27. Check frequently for more information and updates.

In our newsletter sent out last week, the RPGG clearly explained that we were having a special spring sale because we received donations from the Chicago Botanic Garden (in addition to some member donations). Not sure where this erroneous information is coming from. Someone seems to have misunderstood or not read the RPGG communications. Thanks for fixing this! It wouldn't be good to spread incorrect information.

Thanks for blogging about this. I was Googling around for info on Garden clubs in Chicago and your links were a great help in finding the website for the RPGG.
