Elmhurst Garden Club members in cooperation with the Elmhurst Park District and the owners of eight very special gardens in Elmhurst are busy preparing for the 17th annual Elmhurst Garden Walk and Faire scheduled for Sunday, July 8. In addition to the eight gardens and the very popular boutique area with booths selling varied and unique items in Wilder Park, the Walk and Faire will feature
a Chinese herb garden in Wilder Park and a deli luncheon and an art show of works by local artists in Wilder Mansion.
Vendors of garden-related items may now reserve booth space for the boutique in Wilder Park. Applications are available on the Elmhurst Garden Club website, www.elmhurstgardenwalk.com. The application deadline is June 10. The charge for a booth space is $50; if additional space is required, the charge is an additional $20.
