Join Darien Garden Club to Celebrate National Garden Week

In a June tradition, the Darien Garden Club (DGC) will partner with the Indian Prairie Public Library for a National Garden Week program. This year’s event will be held online and in-person at the library from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., June 3, and will include a social time to meet club members, the How to Fight Climate Change in Your Backyard presentation by Mike Nowak and a short meeting to learn about the club’s upcoming events.

“We sponsor a super speaker and topic of interest to many and introduce the public to our garden club,” says Cathy Streett, DGC community service and outreach chair, regarding the event. “This year, we invited Mike Nowak to educate the crowd on ways they can make an environmental difference in their own gardens and yards as we try to help reverse climate-changing trends.”

Streett says DGC has welcomed Nowak’s expertise, humor and easy-going style many times and that, “We always come away inspired and hope to inspire our guests as well.” Nowak is a former Illinois Master Gardener and has hosted garden- and environment-themed radio programs including The Mike Nowak Show with Peggy Malecki.
