Garden Plant Sales May '09

Green & Growing Fair May 2009.jpg

If you're starting a garden for the first time, the plant sales run by local community gardens and garden clubs may be a good source for plants for your urban garden. The money raised by these garden plant sales goes back into communities in Chicago. These plants sales are occurring throughout the city, but I may list a few happening in the nearby suburbs if they are accessible by public transit. If you'd like to have your plant sale listed here leave a comment below.
