Barber and Oberwortmann
The Andrew B. Barber and Clarence D. Oberwortmann Horticultural Center is located adjacent to the Bird Haven Greenhouse in picturesque Pilcher Park. Here's a video about the greenhouse.
Welcome to the Joliet Area Garden Club Website.
Next Meeting is on September 8th.
Harvest Time Chow Down (annual event at JAGC) and Frank Ibarra’s program on our friends the BEES! Did you know that every third bite of food we eat would not be available to us if it were not for the bees or other pollinators?!! If our foods had to be grown under a protective cover would they taste differently? Did you know that the bees use the clover in our yard? Come to this meeting and find out just how important they are to our survival!
Frank is a Will County Master Gardener and Bee Keeper. He has a pair of hives that operate like the most sophisticated cloverleaf intersection on the interstate! It’s fascinating to watch happy bees at work. How do you know when they’re happy? Come to the meeting to find out.
