The Garden Club of Oak Park and River Forest are pleased to announce the first program for the 2018-2019 season: “Garden Herbs for Gourmet Cooking and Specialties”. On September 12, 2018 at Cheney Mansion, 220 N. Euclid, Oak Park, noon until approximately 1:00 p.m. will be snacks, socializing and club announcements; then the featured speaker, Ms. Marcy Lautener-Raleigh.
Ms. Lautener-Raleigh relates that she began growing herbs in 1992 after attending a class in Geneva, IL. By 1995 she had established the “Backyard Patch” to market her herbs. What began as a hobby turned into her personal passion. Ms. Lautener-Raleigh became a published author on the subject of herbs and maintains a blog: www.backyardpatch.blogspot.com. to share her knowledge of herb gardening.
The program is free and open to all. Please join us at noon on September 12, 2018.
