In 2010, the first Elm Grove Library Garden was designed and planted by Irwin Johnson and FOEGL members to beautify the library entrance. Each year since then, we have maintained and cared for it. In 2015, the garden was redesigned by Christopher Fehlhaber, landscape architect, who grew up in Elm Grove and wanted to give back. He expanded the plantings through the years all along the length of Village Hall façade and we maintain them also. The garden was designated a certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation in October 2022. A crew of FOEGL volunteer gardeners works valiantly to keep these garden beds weeded and flourishing, a delight for our Library and community as well as a pollinator and wildlife-friendly habitat.
