Free Chicago Gardening Events 2011

It’s the time of year to start thinking workshops and events. Budget minded as always, I’ve highlighted a few things happening around town soon that are completely FREE.

Gardening Exchange – March 5th 2011 at Kilbourn Park & Organic Greenhouse. There will be basic organic gardening classes as well as a compost/plant sale.

Maple Syrup Festival – March 26th 2011 at North Park Village Nature Center. There will be a demonstration of making syrup from start to finish (from tapping the trees to boiling down sap).

Green & Growing Fair – April 30th 2011 at Garfield Park Conservatory. There will be take home planting activities, mini workshops, a seed/plant sale and demonstrations (including one on composting). The One Seed Chicago 2011 winner will also be announced.

 If anyone knows of any other free Chicago gardening events, feel free to share!
