ST. CHARLES – The Pottawatomie Garden Club will host a plant sale and garden boutique event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Kane County Branch Court, 530 S. Randall Road, St. Charles.

The plant sale will feature mums, kale, grasses, next year’s perennials and dried flower arrangements. Proceeds from the sale will support an annual horticultural scholarship the club awards to a District 303 high school graduate and monetary gifts to the Garfield Farm Museum, We Grow Dreams, St. Charles Public Library and the Illinois Extension Master Gardener Program.

The club also plants flowers in the spring and fall at the St. Charles Municipal Center, the Veteran’s Memorial Garden, the St. Charles Public Library and the Tri City Health Partnership.

 In addition, the club has recently teamed up with the Geneva Garden Cub to install and maintain plantings at the Living Well Cancer Center and the new CASA Grow a Healthy Child Garden, both in Geneva.
