Native plants are the foundation of a healthy ecosystem, supporting countless species of insects, birds, animals and other plant species. Native plants also play a tremendous role in the sequestration of carbon from our atmosphere.
Despite decades of research reinforcing the necessity for native plant communities, the destruction and loss of these endangered ecosystems continues. Careful collection and propagation of local plant genetics can ensure that 10,000+ years of evolutionary adaptation will not be wiped out by short-sighted human activity. With your help native plants can once again populate areas where they once prospered.
Every season we snake our way across the landscape, looking for strong populations of native plants. Large, intact populations offer an opportunity to collect “foundation” seed (seed gathered from the wild). We offer this foundation seed seasonally, in addition to the native plants that we grow from these collections. All plants, either bare root or potted, are grown from seed – never wild dug.
