The Land Conservancy of McHenry County has native plants, organic vegetables and herbs, shrubs, trees, rain barrels and composters for preorder now through April 27 during its Spring Sustainability Sale.

Items are available on TLC's website, www.ConserveMC.org under "Store."


The sale offers a variety of native plants and shrubs locally sourced from Pizzo Nursery in Leland, Illinois. Oak trees in sizes ranging from one foot to 6 feet tall are also available to order, supplied by Majestic Oaks Nursery in Spring Grove.

For the first time, TLC is also offering Certified Naturally Grown vegetables and herbs from Natural Farm Stand in Richmond, Illinois.

Plants start at $2.50, shrubs start at $28 and trees start at $30 and are listed as appropriate for sun, shade, or wet areas. The sale features some unique and unusual native plants in addition to more common varieties.

Recycled rain barrels and composters from Upcycle Products are also available during the sale, starting at $64. Rain barrels are available in a variety of colors including blue, gray, black and terra cotta. Rain barrels capture rainwater and divert it for use on gardens.

Tumbling and standard composters are also available. Composters decompose food and turn it into organic matter for garden use.

Items are available for pickup May 14-15 in Woodstock. Customers will be contacted regarding the pickup location and times. Customers are encouraged to place their orders early since many items sell out quickly.
