Our Story

Welcome!!!

My name is Nick Fuller and as a fellow native plant enthusiast, I saw a need for an
outlet that focused on plants native to Illinois. In 2014 I set out to solve that problem by creating Natural Communities Native Plants. We have gone about that solution in a slightly unusual way.  Rather than a traditional "bricks and mortar" store locked into a single location, we felt that by housing ourselves online we could better serve the large geographic area, making plants available to all.  We hope that you find our store convenient with online shopping, free local pick up, and shipping to your home.  In addition to online sales, we also sell at local green events to get the native word out educating the public about the benefits of native landscapes. 
Why We Are Different
We a laser focused on restoring the Chicago and Illinois areas. 
Who We Are
Although the company may be relatively new, our team comes strait from the local restoration movement with years and years of experience serving the Chicago, northern Illinois, and greater Midwest areas.  We have a passion for reviving ecosystems through ecological restoration and native landscaping!
