Charleston Area Chamber of Commerce - Event Information

Event Name:Whiteside Garden Volunteer Day
Event Type(s):Community Event
Description:In 1963, Dr. Wesley (Wes) Whiteside began transforming 5 acres of former farmland into a diverse botanical garden that has become a true treasure for east-central Illinois.  After he retired in 1987, Wes continued to nurture and develop his garden, drawing many visitors to view his collections, which are unmatched in the region. We love Whiteside Garden in part because it was one of our own that started this amazing community garden! It is a volunteer driven labor of love! Come and lend a hand to help mulching, weeding, trimming, and more. Please wear closed toed shoes and long pants.
