The Growing Place
 
 

We are proud to announce that both our children have joined us at The Growing Place and will be learning and growing with us. As many of you already know, Michael has been an integral part of The Growing Place for some years and Becca for about a year, learning the ins and outs of The Growing Place. Some of you have known them since they were little. If you have, be sure to stop by and tell them so!

We received many positive and helpful suggestions from last fall's customer survey. We value your input greatly and are implementing the advice where we can. Many of you mentioned our peaceful garden atmosphere. We love it too! Stop by often to experience their ever-changing beauty.

We’ve planned more activities and classes at our Naperville location.

We've added a Downton Abbey Flower Faire in July, a Beer and BBQ Day in August for our Growing Rewards members and…a monthly 'Garden to Table' culinary series featuring our favorite recipes and tips.

We've incorporated many kid friendly activities into our events and classes We've added more 'Make & Take' garden craft classes throughout the year. They have been a popular way for gardeners to add a little personality to their gardens.

Thank you and happy gardening!
