Master Gardeners' Demo Garden at MCC

The McHenry County Master Gardeners' Demonstration Garden at MCC

Garden Walk 2017 offers the sometimes small but always sweet gardens of bungalows, nestling in the up and down streets of the Crystal Lake Public Library neighborhood much as children nestle near one another to hear a bed-time story. Arbors, window boxes, trellises, and perennials nodding in the breeze give way to paths leading to secret areas. The bungalows themselves evoke local history, and the presence of a bench in the garden is not a coincidence—it’s an invitation to sit and, perhaps, to read. For beautiful contrast, a large garden dotted by koi ponds and filled with rows of vegetables, fruit and nut trees, and stunning perennials and annuals are on the roster. Come visit. Sit and rest, and read.
