Chicago Plant Rescue will save your plants from the garbage dump
DOWNTOWN — Don’t want to care for that potted perennial you got as a housewarming gift?
Don’t dump it in the trash.
Chicago Plant Rescue team members will come to your home and pick up your unwanted plants — for free — and then replant them at a multitude of community gardens or schools around the city. It’s primarily looking for donations from businesses with seasonal plantings and landscape companies who donate many plants at a time.
