Love of flowers and plants inspired new nursery in Oak Park
It’s no secret that Oak Park is seeing an influx of new businesses. Among the newcomers is The Plant Foundry, which opened over the summer in North Oak Park. The Plant Foundry sells a variety of items, including plants from Sweetwater Nursery and Annie’s Rare, Unusual & Heirloom Plants; artisan chicken coops from Two Flew the Coop; local honey from Arden Hills Gold; and biodegradable pots from EcoForms.
They’ll also help get you ready for the holidays, with trees, garland, wreaths, and poinsettias – not to mention gifts, ornaments, and everything you’ll need to have the most festive house on the block. The best part? They’ve teamed up with Edible Pedal to deliver to Oak Park, Midtown, Curtis Park, Tahoe Park, and East Sac – just give them a call, let them know what kind of tree you’d like and you’ll have it within 2 days!
I sat down with Angela Pratt, the owner-operator, and got the scoop on their grand opening celebration, scheduled for this Saturday. Spoiler alert: South will host a biscuit bar at the bash! Get your Christmas tree, grab a snack, and listen to great music as you get to know the newest member of a booming part of town.
