Rescue Homeless Garfield Park Conservatory Plants

10/6/2011

WHAT: Help rescue a homeless plant and take home a piece of living history from the Garfield Park Conservatory, all while donating to help rebuild the damaged facility.
WHO: Those looking to adopt can choose from tropical trees and plants, succulents, and perennials are looking for a good home.
WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 22 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or until all plants are sold)
WHERE: Garfield Park Conservatory, 300 N. Central Park Ave.
*Near Garfield Market Place, located just north of Conservatory Entrance
MORE: Many of plants that would have been stored in the currently damaged propagation houses need new homes. Since the hail storm damage occurred to the 103 year old facility on June 30th, these plants have been able to live outside during the summer. As normal fall temperatures begin to drop, these plants will be at risk. They are in dire need of a loving home!
Average cost of plants will be under $10, with some larger tropical plants priced higher. Additional donations welcome. All proceeds from this sale will go toward benefiting the Garfield Park Conservatory renovation.
Master Gardeners will be on hand to help answer plant care questions.
