Grab & Grow: Plant Propagation ~ Tuesday, September 8th

The Grab & Grow program is offered in September (Prayer Plant), October (Pothos), and November (Holiday cactus).  Please register for just one month to ensure more people can learn how to propagate!

This month we will share cuttings of prayer plants (Maranta leuconeura). Plant propagation is the process of collecting clippings from one plant to grow an entirely new one. Please register in advance for this program in order to receive a kit with everything you need to start your new plant. Once the cuttings are prepared, you will be contacted and must pick up between September 8 and September 11. 

Note: Due to limited supplies, we can only accommodate 30 registrants. Those on the waitlist will be notified in the order of registration if extra cuttings become available. If you cannot pick up your cutting between 9/8-9/11 please call 708.422.8522 to release it to the next person. All Day 9/8 - 9/11

WITS Workout ~ Thursday, September 17 from 1 to 2 pm

Give your brain the workout it needs to stay sharp. Participate in interactive brain teasers, games, and puzzles that get you thinking, because coming together and learning new things is good for your noggin! Recommended for older adults. 

You must register in advance with your email so that the corresponding documents can be emailed to you prior to the program. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom meeting ID & password. Evergreen Park Public Library
