An Evening in the Garden

Enjoy an evening in the landscape and gardens of a local farmstead in Central Illinois. Debbie and Larry Weber of Palmer are opening their farm for visitors to see all the landscape projects they have done while living there for 45 years. They hope to spark imagination and show the public that anyone can get involved in gardening and make their own oasis in the backyards.

This event is FREE and open to the public, but donations are appreciated.

You will also have the opportunity to view local art created by Amanda Greive and Denise Blakeman and enjoy lemonade and produce from the gardens with homemade treats. You may also purchase raffle tickets to win custom Adirondack chairs, which proceeds from the chairs will be donated to St. Jude's.

Please do not visit the property until the day of the event.

Registration deadline is July 14.

If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate, contact Christian County Extension at 217-287-7246.
