Adopt A Planter Program

The Community Relations Commission invites all Village residents and businesses to participate in the Village’s 2020 Summer Adopt A Planter Program.  Individuals, families, organizations, businesses and other groups may sign up to “adopt” one of the large Village planters located at the train station, Civic Center, and along Dempster Street and Waukegan Road. Past participants will be given priority to adopt their same planter and businesses will be given priority to adopt the planter closest to their store or office. Click here to sign up today!  All Participants will receive an email approximately one week before “Planting Day” with their planter assignment and other details.

Planting Day is Saturday, June 6, 2020. Participants should pick up their free starter kit of assorted fresh plants in the Civic Center parking lot from 9:00 to 11:00 am. To comply with COVID-19 requirements and for the safety of the participants, staff and volunteers, participants will stay in their cars, and the starter kit will be placed in their back seat or trunk.  Participants will then immediately plant their starter kit in their assigned planter and may also add their own additional plants and decorations. Throughout the summer Public Works will water all planters and participants are encouraged to visit and check their planter weekly.

Adopting a planter is an excellent way to show pride in our community, enjoy fresh air while practicing social distancing and will keep the Village beautiful. For more information contact
