Our primary focus is finding plant varieties that are not only productive for our region but also have exceptional flavor. Each year we do tastings to determine which ones we will continue to offer and which new ones to add.
We offer varieties that are difficult, if not impossible, to find elsewhere commercially.
All plants are grown right here on site without the use of chemical herbicides, fungicides or pesticides.
We utilize seeds from companies that do not do business with agro-chemical subsidiaries - all seeds are non-GMO.
We do not use hormone growth inhibitors on our plants. Most nurseries will use these growth inhibitors to allow their plants to remain marketable for longer periods of time. This can result in disappointing results in your garden.
Our plants all come from seed that is free of neonicotinoids which have been proven to kill pollinators.
Our plant nursery strives to offer the residents of the San Francisco East Bay a sustainable, responsible source for their edible and native garden needs with exceptional customer service. Our goal is to make sure novices and advanced gardeners alike are successful by offering adaptable varieties of plants that are known to do well in our region with minimal care.
**Due to the recent COVID surge we are suspending our Consultations until a later time.**
We offer consultations at your home or at our urban farm/plant nursery to help you learn to grow your own food or help you work through the design challenges of your individual site. We also offer private group consultations for any of the workshops we provide.
We are currently in the process of finding a permanent location in our community. It takes a lot of resources to continue to expand to a brick and mortar store. We are currently running a fundraiser selling merchandise to help us grow.
We strive to improve community health by providing plants that provide fresh, healthy food, teaching others how to be successful with producing their own healthy food and providing native wildlife habitat to reduce the need for pesticides.
With our state's history of droughts our nursery strives to provide native plant material that has evolved to thrive in our unique, dry climate and are adapted to our specific region.
