We are a small group of horticulture enthusiasts based in Chicago. We work as architects, landscape architects, higher education administrators, coffee roasters, and even cheese mongers!
Chicago Plant Rescue works to divert viable plants from the waste stream to be planted in community gardens.
We connect with landscapers who have healthy waste or excess plants. This occurs when seasonal plantings are changed or companies are unable to store plants.
We pick up perennial plants from landscapers and temporarily store them in our pop-up storage facilities.We work with community gardens and organizations all over Chicago to find permanent homes for the plants.
We are currently looking for excited individuals in the Chicago community that can help identify and sort plants, transport or store new donations, and be part of our team!
