Plum Grove Garden Club plants flowers, vegetables at Clearbrook group homes
While a pair of landscaping companies -- Bolder Landscaping in Mount Prospect and Acres Group in Plainfield -- donated the mulch and helped to trim and reshape the beds, the gardeners got down on their hands and knees to plant the flowers.
They ranged from perennials, such as purple coneflowers, black-eyed Susans and day lilies; to annuals that included begonias, marigolds and petunias, as well as rose bushes, ground cover and native grasses.
"This is fun -- and rewarding," said Kay Marguerite of Palatine, a near 40-year member of the garden club. "And it's nice to see all the residents working hard and so excited about this."
Mostly, the clients were interested in the vegetable garden, planted in a raised bed in the backyard. The chance to cultivate their own garden sparked memories -- and conversation -- about how they grew vegetables at their homes, back when they lived with their parents.
"Back home, we had a garden," said Scott Bennett. "My parents always grew tomatoes and cucumbers."
William Good now takes a horticulture class twice a week at Little City in Palatine, consequently his housemates looked to him when deciding what vegetables to plant. In the end, they settled on tomatoes, peppers, zucchini and rosemary.
"I like working with my hands," Good said, "and returning to the earth."
The project came about through a grant from the Palatine Jaycees, whose members saw the benefits of Clearbrook clients learning to garden, as well as the outreach possibilities of the garden club members extending their expertise.
Tim Jones, the activity director for Clearbrook's 50 group homes, says the project is unique in that the Plum Grove gardeners will return every week during the summer, to maintain the new flowers and vegetables, and their new relationships.
"This is the first of its kind, that I know of," Jones said. "It's not just a one-day spruce up. This kind of partnership sets the foundation for the clients to continue, after the gardeners leave."

Family Gardening Provides More Than a Bountiful Harvest
SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ - Gardeners know digging, planting, harvesting and even viewing a garden is good for the mind, body and spirit.

Simbang Gabi heralds Christmas in Philippine tradition
The Masses are set for 7 p.m. Wednesday at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church in Darien and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at St. Mary Immaculate Church in Plainfield.
Several Catholic churches grouped in two clusters within the Joliet Diocese will take turns hosting each evening's Mass. The novena takes its name -- Simbang Gabi -- from the Philippine native language, Tagalog.
"It means 'Night Mass,'" said Ditas Alzona, organizer of the special service at Christ the King Catholic Church in Lombard, which will host Simbang Gabi for the eastern cluster on Thursday, Dec. 15. Many people go to Mass on each of the nine nights to complete the novena, she said.
"It's in preparation for Christmas Day, in preparation for the coming of the Lord," she said.
Alzona said the Mass, which includes a children's procession, music and special readings, is similar to those observed in the islands.
"The only difference is the time. Normally, in the Philippines, Simbang Gabi is celebrated at 4 o'clock in the morning because the people are fishermen or farmers," she said. "We have to adjust to the time."
Masses in the diocese are scheduled for as early as 4:30 p.m. and as late as 7:30 p.m.
Lourdes Chew is on the Simbang Gabi committee at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Naperville. St. Thomas is hosting Simbang Gabi Mass at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17.
"Most Filipinos who have moved here and are Americans now have experienced this as a child. For most of us, we grew up with this tradition," she said. "We're very excited the diocese supports us."
Chew said the tradition is a long held one.
"It started way back in the 1500s," she said. "Back home, it's actually held outdoors. The w... (Chicago Daily Herald)Nov 24, 2016

Zoë stood in one of the several lines students were organized into outside the school before they headed to their classrooms to meet their new teachers. Many parents were there to watch their children, with some taking photos on their phones.
