Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
First annual Garden Social to benefit Friends of Brookside Gardens. Regional garden clubs will be on hand to describe what they do and answer your plant questions. There will also be a plant swap -- so bring a plant from your garden -- at 11:30 a.m., as well as raffles and a silent auction featuring the services of harpist Jim Dronenburg and photographer Daniel Weil. At 3 p.m., David Culp of Sunny Border Nurseries will lecture on perennials. All proceeds will go to support Brookside, a public garden in Wheaton.
