While the Friends of the Oak Park Conservatory Plant Sale shifted to online sales and drive-thru plant pickups this week at Rehm Park, the group’s collaboration with the Garden Club of Oak Park-River Forest on the annual Garden Walk did not survive the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 27th annual event had been scheduled for June 28. It is now scheduled for 2021. June 27, 2021 to be precise. Mark your calendars.
The co-chairs, Sue Boyer and Gina Sennello, wrote, “We are immensely grateful for the support of this year’s garden owners and delighted to hear they plan to participate in next year’s walk.” They called the event, which is also a key fundraiser for both organizations, a “truly community-building event. It brings people together, promotes innovative ideas and inspires future gardeners. And who doesn’t love beautiful flowers?” Well said.
