Downers Grove Online Garden Walk

July 11 to August 8, 2020

To benefit the DGFUMC Bridge Board program

providing transitional housing and mentoring
for formerly homeless families

The 14th Annual Downers Grove Garden Walk will be held online this year. This year's virtual Garden Walk will be a “sneak peek” of the gardens for 2021 with a professionally produced YouTube video to be posted here beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 11. It will remain online through August 8.

This sneak peek will feature gardens that would have been on this year's Garden Walk and will instead appear on the walk next year, when we can visit in person.

The Garden Walk is a fundraiser benefiting the Bridge Board of the Downers Grove First United Methodist Church in providing transitional housing and mentoring for homeless families. No ticket purchase will be necessary. There will be an option to donate online in support of our church's Bridge program and the families that we mentor, should you choose to do so. We appreciate your understanding and your generous support of this meaningful mission.
