The Gardeners of the North Shore meet at 7:30 PM on the first Tuesday of each month, April though November, at the Chicago Botanic Garden. The Garden is located at 1000 Lake Cook Road, Glencoe, Illinois. Our meetings are held in the Pullman room of the Regenstein Center.
Our monthly meetings vary in content but regularly feature expert guest speakers discussing a variety of horticultural topics, often with PowerPoint presentations or hands-on instruction, advice from resident experts on just about any gardening subject, and updates on future club events.
