Downers Grove Online Garden Walk

The 14th Annual Downers Grove Garden Walk was online this year. Thank you to everyone who visited the virtual “sneak peek” of the gardens for 2021. To donate online in support of our church's Bridge program and the families that we mentor, please visit the donate link on the right. We appreciate your generous support of this meaningful mission.

About the Garden Walk

The Garden Walk is a fundraiser benefitting the Bridge Board of the First United Methodist Church in Downers Grove (DGFUMC). The Bridge Board is a program partner with Bridge Communities, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose focus is to transform the lives of homeless families by guiding them to a better future. This mission is accomplished by providing housing, mentoring, direction, hope, encouragement, and a stable environment so that families may become self-sufficient and sustain their independence. Every family resides in DuPage County. 

Thank You!

All proceeds from the Garden Walk support the work of the DGFUMC Bridge Board to support three Bridge families. We have had 14 successful years because of support from garden lovers and from donations of various community sponsors.

Homeowners graciously share their private gardens for the benefit of our work in helping homeless families and for your enjoyment. A big thank you go out to them for all their hard work in preparing their gardens for this walk!

We also would like to thank Randy Daniels of Watersong Media for his excellent work in recording the video and his production efforts.

We especially appreciate your support of our cause and hope you enjoyed this preview. We invite you to join us in person at the gardens in 2021!
