Giving DuPage Days: May 1-5

For 5 days in May, an entire county will come together to send a resounding message of HOPE to our local nonprofit community. Community organizations continue to serve our residents during the many challenges we face today. This is our opportunity to honor and support their work!

From May 1-5, we will connect individuals, families, businesses, schools, community & faith groups to celebrate and create awareness for participating charities. Everyone is welcome and donors of all ages can participate! In the past 2 years, over 4,600 amazing donors have helped to raise $622,072 for so many worthy nonprofit causes!

Join us this year to show how GENEROSITY CHANGES EVERYTHING and help local charities raise unrestricted funds in support of their mission and critical programs!  Check out our page HERE


We are Hiring!

We Grow Dreams is now hiring for the busy month of May! Starting in just about a month, ALL of our wonderful customers will be coming in to pick out their favorite summer annuals and we need extra hands to handle all of those transactions! If you love plants, love our mission, and have some extra time in the month of May, join us in the fulfilling experience of working at We Grow Dreams!
We need help on weekends, so availability on Saturdays and Sundays is a must and 1-2 days during the week with the ability to stay until 6 PM would be ever so helpful. It does get HOT in the greenhouse in May, so the ability to handle the heat and humidity is also a must. Now, let’s tell you about all of the wonderful things about working here:
It is a truly unique experience almost every day, especially on Saturdays when our largest working crew is here! Our Team Members are always eager to meet new people and are some of the friendliest people you will ever know. Our customers are also some of the most wonderful as well, it is very rare that we have any negative customer experiences. Part of the reason for that is we have beautiful, healthy plants and part of this is because they just love to support the work that we do here, and we promise you will feel the same! If you are interested, or know someone who may be looking for a seasonal job, send them our way! Please e-mail resumes to [email protected] or call the greenhouse during business hours with questions!


May is here and we are now open 7 days a week!  Our May hours are expanded to Monday-Friday 9-5 and Saturday-Sunday 9-4.  We’re doing all we can with our small staff to keep the doors open as much as possible for our customers to come and shop during this busy month.  Don’t forget to come see us this season to help our mission to provide employment for adults with disabilities- your support means SO much!

A detailed list of the plants we will have to offer very soon is available on our website, click HERE to view our list of annuals, perennials, vegetables and more!  Keep in mind that not all of these plants will be available, and therefore shouldn’t be planted until after the threat of frost has past our zone.

Our crews are getting ready to bring our perennials and geraniums, later on will come the flat based annuals in a couple short weeks.  Please give us a call if you are looking for something in particular, thank you for supporting We Grow Dreams!

Our Mission
To provide people with disabilities the opportunity to lead fulfilling lives and to train and work in a supportive, safe, and caring environment while producing and providing products and services to the community. In this pursuit, we honor the concepts of human dignity, respect, hard work, fellowship, and friendship.
COVID 19 Update
In accordance with CDC guidlines, we do not require masks at the greenhouse.  Please remember that different people have different personal situations and may choose to continue to wear a mask.  We respect the choice that others make regarding mask usage and ask that our customers do the same.
