SCARCE is hosting a Get You Garden Growing Green event on Saturday, May 10. Everything you need to get a garden started from scratch or ready for this year's planting will be at SCARCE, including experts in gardening, landscaping, beekeeping and more!
Seedlings and Food Scrap Amended Compost Sale
Preorder organics seedlings, grown locally in Villa Park and support SCARCE at the same time. Pick up your seedlings on May 10 at this event. To order click here.
Preorder food scrap amended compost from local company, Compost Supply. You can order as little as 5 pounds of compost up to the quantity you need for your garden! Help complete the circle by returning food scrap compost nutrients into your garden to help produce a bountiful crop of vegetables.
SCARCE will have multiple rain barrels on display, as well as gutter adaption kits, so you can decide which rain barrel best suits your house and garden.
Cantigny Park and The Conservation Foundation will be there with rain barrels, gutter adapters and stands for purchase.
Check out a variety of compost bins in different shapes and sizes to figure out which bin would work best for your yard. SCARCE will have a handful of our favorite bin, made by SCARCE staff, available for a donation.
