A portion of the proceeds is allocated to a joint program between the village and the chamber to fund a poster contest that teaches students to be more familiar with the environmental benefits provided by trees. This contest is open to fifth-grade students from Wauconda Grade School, Robert Crown Elementary School and Transfiguration Catholic School. All three schools will receive a planted tree or shrub for their participation.

To help kick-start the planting, free compost will be offered with any purchase. Midwest Organics, a local provider at Golden Oaks Farm, is donating the compost.

As an added bonus, the Wauconda Public Works Department and Homer Tree Care will provide free curbside tree delivery to residents within the boundaries of Wauconda Unit District 118.

A complete plant list and prices can be found at www.waucondaareachamber.org. Contact the chamber for more information at (847) 526-5580.
