Growing Sustainably in the Pacific Northwest

Native plant species meet virtually any landscaping need. Since they grow in our region’s soils and climate they generally require less maintenance, such as watering, spraying or fertilizing. They are a key element of the Pacific Northwest’s environment & ecosystem and provide a natural habitat for birds & wildlife. Natives can be successfully used in combination with other ornamentals to create an exciting and inviting landscape.

Our Values

We believe that what is good for the earth is good for the nursery, and our definition of profit includes actively supporting many community programs, especially those that benefit children and the environment.

Since its inception, the nursery has been using sustainable methods to control weeds and pests. We are committed investors in renewable technologies, such as solar power and locally produced biodiesel, and were one of the first  in Oregon to become Carbon Neutral. We also participate in several independent, third-party verification and certification programs, such as: LIVE, Salmon-Safe, FoodHub, and the Carbon Reduction Challenge.
