Gardenpalooza 2016

The Helen M. Plum Memorial Library presents Gardenpalooza, and The GardenWorks Project is part of it! Join us and our friends at Sweet Home Organics for garden fun, presentations, crafts for kids and adults, and refreshments. 

Sweet Home Organics of Villa Park will sell organically and locally grown vegetable seedlings on the Library plaza overlooking the park. These seedlings will include crops that grow well in the cooler weather of fall and will be ready to plant. Pioneer Garden and Feed of Villa Park will sell bagged organic compost and fertilizers.
