Learn and Grow Lectures are back!

April 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Friends of the Oak Park Conservatory Master Gardeners will highlight plants that will be available at our Annual Plant Sale. Come learn with us — programs are for all gardening levels. Registration is required for these free virtual programs. A Zoom link will be sent to participants in advance.

  • April 8 (7-8pm) – Essential Garden Tools & Care: When it comes to gardening, the right tools for the job really do make a difference. Join the Friends of the Oak Park Conservatory Master Gardener Don Nekrosius to learn about the essential gardening tools and how to clean, sharpen, and care for them.

  • April 15 (7-8pm) – Plant Dividing: Dividing perennials in early spring through early summer is a great way to make the most of your favorite plants already in your garden. When dividing perennials, you’re keeping the garden tidy and healthy, encouraging plants to bloom, and getting more plants to put elsewhere. Join the Friends of the Oak Park Conservatory Master Gardener, Kayla Chase, who will share when, how, and why to divide plants. 

  • April 22 (7-8pm) – Edibles & Raised Beds: Join us on Earth Day when the Friends of the Oak Park Conservatory Master Gardener Suzette Gacek offers expert tips on growing culinary herbs and edibles in raised beds and containers. Learn the basics and get a sneak peek into the varieties of edibles available at The Friends Annual Plant Sale. 

  • April 29 (7-8pm) – Container Companions: Take your patio garden to the next level with this refresher on the basics of container gardening. Join the Friends of the Oak Park Conservatory Master Gardener Ellen Kuner to learn expert tips for planting containers using annuals and edibles–including those available at The Friends Annual Plant Sale.
