Growing with Nature: Organic Plant Sale

The Prairie Crossing Charter School and Learning Farm are partnering up again for their 4th annual plant sale. This year's theme for the plant sale is "grow your own groceries". At the plant sale individuals will be present who can offer advice and expertise on which plants are the best to buy for your garden plot. Also recieve professional advice on composting and vermicomposting and making it work for your garden space.

Earthwild Gardens of Prairie Crossing will also be at the plant sale offering a wide variety of native plants. If you haven't gardened with native plants I suggest that you try. Native landscaping over the longterm is more cost effective than traditional landscaping. A gardener can potentially save several hundreds of dollars in maintence costs annually. Natives also live in harmony with the environment and therefore need less time in care and maintence giving you more time to enjoy the fruits of your labor and love.

So come down to the plant sale on Saturday May 9th. It is located at Station Square at Prairie Crossing 977 Harris Road, Grayslake IL from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. This even will benefit both the school and the learning farm.
