Peoria Gardens Sustainability
At Peoria Gardens we take pride in offering the highest quality plants. We believe a healthy environment leads to more gardening, and more gardening leads to a healthier environment. We are beekeepers ourselves and care deeply about pollinator insects. Check out our native plant selection!
We are proud to say we use NO neonicotinoids. With beneficial insects we have significantly reduced our use of pesticides. You might find a small card, or sachet, in the plants we deliver. These sachets are how the beneficial insects are applied to the crops, so keep it around to get the full benefit of these good insects.
Careful sourcing of high quality Non-GMO seeds and plants, along with our knowledgeable staff, allows Peoria Gardens to deliver a product that is good for your customers as well as the environment.
Through investing in solar energy, advanced greenhouse coverings and high efficiency heating systems, Peoria Gardens has reduced energy consumption by 30%. Our fleet of delivery trucks runs on R99, a clean renewable fuel that further reduces emissions by an additional 60%!
Sustainability is not just an environmental responsibility; it is also a social issue. Peoria Gardens has eight employees with over 20 years of service, and six employees with over 30 years of service. We take care of our employees by offering health care, paid sick leave, twelve weeks of paid maternity and paternity leave, a pension and vacation.
Our employees are like family and we couldn’t be more proud of our team.
Peoria Gardens delivers the highest quality plants to give you and the home gardener peace of mind.
