Naperville Community Gardeners held plant sale, despite rain

-

The Naperville Community Gardeners held their annual homegrown plant sale Saturday and many gardeners endured the rainy weather near the garden plots on West Street.

The sale held annually on the Saturday before Mother’s Day is open to the public and offers annuals, hanging baskets, vegetables, bulbs and perennials. Proceeds of the sale help fund the club’s donations to the Garden Plots and the Riverwalk.

The Gardeners meet monthly, complete community gardening projects throughout the year, and offer local gardening tips and advice.

For gardening information and future events hosted by the Naperville Community Gardeners visit www.napervillecommunitygardeners.org.
