July 31 Monthly Meeting

Posted by Ron Wolford -

We have a special treat for our July 31 Monthly Meeting, a trip to the zoo and a visit to the Edible Garden at the Farm in the Zoo.

We have a new partnership with Lincoln Park Zoo, and the much enlarged Edible Garden. Fellow Master Gardeners have been volunteering there all spring and summer. Come and see the results of their work.

Master Gardener Monthly Meeting

Date and time:Tuesday, July 31, 2007

6:30 p.m. - Pot luck dinner

Where: Farm House at the Farm-in-the-Zoo

Tour of the Garden

Program- Extending the Season- Jeanne Pinsof, Edible Garden manager

Opportunities at the Zoo- Steven Soloman, LP Zoo, Education Department

Did you know that the Edible Garden will be open through December? Learn some of these season extending techniques for you own vegetable garden.

Of course, Master Gardeners are still active with the Flower Gardens at LPZoo. Why not come out early to visit the zoo and admire the gardens? How about a walk through the newly restored Lilly Pool area? Zoo buildings close at 5:00 p.m. and the grounds at 6:00 p.m. Our pot luck dinner is at 6:30 p.m.

RSVP FOR FREE PARKING- The zoo will provide free parking for Master Gardeners, but we need to know how many, so please RSVP to Elizabeth to reserve parking.

DIRECTIONS FOR PARKING -Enter the zoo parking lot at Fullerton and Cannon. Drive past the main entrance to the area near that posted for buses. There is a sidewalk there that runs through Lincoln Park to the Farm-in-the-Zoo. It is on the south edge of the zoo fence. You will receive a "chaser card" for exit at the meeting.

See you at the zoo.
