|The Garfield Park Conservatory is owned and maintained by the Chicago Park District, including the entire plant collection.|
|Referred to as "landscape art under glass," the Garfield Park Conservatory occupies approximately 4.5 acres inside and out.|
I had about 15 minutes to burn before my interview with the Master Gardeners, so I took a few shots to share with all of you.
Hopefully I will be spending more time at the conservatory IF I get into the Illinois Master Gardener's program. I would take the course work online and then volunteer 60 hours of my time after the training before officially becoming a Master Gardener. I enjoy gardening, especially organic vegetable gardening, and the training I would receive through the program would be invaluable. I'll keep you posted, I should hear back from the program in the next few weeks.
