Where To Find Our Plants
We area a licensed nursery sharing extra from our own restoration efforts at markets throughout the season.
We offer a “pay what you can, take what you need” self-serve plant stand at the end of our driveway that opens in mid-May.
Our farmstand has sold out for spring but will reopen in autumn.
We’re extra busy this season again caring for family and will not be offering regular sales on our website. We plan to offer shop drops at specified times. Sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media to learn more
What We Grow
Everything we offer we are also in the process of incorporating into our own gardens.
We are most interested in growing plants that when nurtured, can provide food, teas, medicines, and other regenerative gifts. Most of the plants we are growing are native to our area as native plants provide the most benefit to our local ecosystem and are well-positioned to adapt to a rapidly changing climate.
In addition to native plants, we offer a few heirloom nonnative perennial vegetable staples along with a very limited supply of annual veggie starts that we are integrating into own gardens
Why We Love Perennial Plants
Perennials are longer lived. When nurtured, they can often grow alongside us for years (or outlive us!). Plant them once, and they can provide harvests of foods, teas, medicines, and other regenerative gifts for years while enriching the soil and our backyard ecosystems. They’re also generally easier to care for and are drought tolerant, which is becoming increasingly important in our rapidly changing world. Comparatively, annual plants generally need to be re-grown from seed and replanted every year. They require much more care, water, and fertilizer. That kind of effort just doesn’t mesh as well with our lifestyle or goals. While we do continue to use staple annuals in our gardens (using no-till methods) we prefer perennials whenever possible. We consequently have a lot of perennial seedlings to share as we continue converting our lawn.
How We Grow
As a small backyard operation, we’re able to rely heavily on manual care and avoid use of pesticides. All of our pots have been previously used and were donated to our nursery by our surrounding community. Although most are plastic, you can rest assured that we’re trying to give another breath of life into materials that would very likely otherwise have already ended up in a landfill.
We hope to gradually move completely away from plastic over the course of the next few years. We are actively experimenting with additional growing methods that completely negate the use of plastic and materials from extractive industries. We experimented with offering some plants in pot-less soil blocks last summer and hop to have soil block offerings this season with additional species and new growing media variations
