Read Below For More Information. 


This year Natural Communities Native Plants is proud to partner with the Kendall County Forest Preserve District to offer a pre-order native plant sale with nearly 200 species native to the Chicago Region!!! Proceeds will benefit the projects of the Forest Foundation of Kendall County in support of the Kendall County Forest Preserve District. 

The plant sale/pick-up date is set for Sunday, May 28, 2017, at Harris Forest Preserve.  Pre-order sales include; native flowers, grasses, sedges, ferns, shrubs, and trees. We will also offer a selection of the best native landscaping plants for purchase the day of the event. We hope to have all pre-order plants ready for pick-up at the event.  However, a few select plant species may need a bit of extra time to grow and will not be ready for the event pick up. This is unpredictable from year to year and is dependent upon the number of sunny days and temperatures we receive. We will work directly with Kendall County Forest Preserve District to set a convenient secondary pick-up window in June when the plants become ready.
