Grab & Grow: Plant Propagation ~ October 6 to 9

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

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 October 6 and 9.

Note: Limited supplies so only 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 10/6-9 please call 708.422.8522 to release it to the next person.  Evergreen Park Public Library
