Thanks, CAC. It has been a while!
Wow, people, we are not being good at spreading green news if no one has posted here in a year and a half! To change that, I will add this:
The West Cook chapter of Wild Ones Native Landscapers is having a native plant sale. Pre-orders are due Mar. 31 and pickup is at our first Native Landscaping Conference on May 17 at Dominican University. See lots of info about those things here: http://wild-ones-west-cook.shopify.com and http://westcook.wildones.org/welcome-to-wild-ones-of-west-cook/conf...
@dg - You can opt out of circulars by calling the Trib, although it's more difficult if you live in an apartment where they will just claim others have not opted out. See below:
"If a resident wishes to stop delivery, please call 1-800-TRIBUNE or email email@example.com."
Great green event this weekend, showcasing great homes, one in OP and RF and many others nearby! http://www.greenbuilthometour.org $20 for two people and kids free. Check it out!
Interested in native plants and want to learn more, or share your knowledge? Put this event on your calendar. It's July 21st, 2.30pm at Green Home Experts (on South Blvd just west of OP Ave). http://greencommunityconnections.org/go-native-with-wild-ones/
Wow, where have we all been for a year? A great current source to check out is http://www.greencommunityconnections.org for an awesome group of people and the latest on green events around Oak Park and elsewhere.
Beekeeping Camp for Kids (ages 9-12) in Downers Grove
There are a lot of kids in the area who are interested in beekeeping. This nature camp promises to be fascinating and fun!
Lyman Woods Junior BeekeepersSmoke out a real adventure! Suit up and join our beekeeper to investigate firsthand the inner workings of a beehive. Learn all about hives and colonies while you build a hive and inspect real frames of bees. Build a solar wax melter and learn how to make beeswax candles, and even harvest honey from the hives! Must be comfortable being close to bees.
