The August 12 MIPE meeting will held at the Oak Lawn Community Garden, 5220 West 105th St. in Oak Lawn. Gather in at 10:15 AM. In 2016 the Oak Lawn Park District partnered with SD123 and the Village of Oak Lawn to build a community garden. The garden includes rented spaces, a volunteer run pantry garden and a pollinator garden. At 10:30 AM Horticulturist Dolly Foster will make a presentation on how this site was created and how it operates, followed by tours of the garden. Lunch and a short MIPE business meeting will follow at 11:30.

The Community Garden is located on the north side of the property at the corner of 104th Street and Cook Ave. Enter through the gate in the parking lot.

Cost is $15.00 for MIPE members.

Pre-registration is required by emailing (preferred method) John Ohrlund at mipeexecsec@gmail.com or calling 847-558-3283 by Friday, August 6. RSVP early!
