LOGAN SQUARE — Gardeners can buy native plants and support community arts space Comfort Station as part of a month-long sale to help the organization’s programs.

Comfort Station, 2579 N.Milwaukee Ave., teamed up with local growers to sell plant kits through May 28, or while supplies last.

Kits cost $65 to $85 and include a handful of plant varieties for different garden conditions. The “full sun container garden,” for example, includes common milkweed, rough blazingstar, leadplant, black-eyed susan and prairie dropseed.

Proceeds from the kits — now available for pre-order — will benefit the Comfort Station’s programs. The organization puts on up to 200 concerts, art shows and other cultural events every year.

Plant kits can be picked up 8 a.m.-4 p.m. June 11 in the parking lot of Brentano Elementary Math & Science Academy, 2723 N. Fairfield Ave.

Jeremy Ohmes of Wild World Garden is slated to lead a native plants workshop on Comfort Station’s lawn June 12. A limited selection of individual plants will be up for sale at the event.

Comfort Station is also raising money for repairs after a flood this past winter. That fundraiser is a joint effort with partner organization Logan Square Preservation.
