Great News!

Master Card and Visa credit cards, and debit cards now accepted

Minimum credit card purchase is $20. Our setup requires that the actual card be present when we record the transaction. Because the equipment is telephone-based, we will now be writing up all sales in the office.

Are you aware of the volume discount at Native Here? Sometimes you may not find $500 worth of plants at a given time, but you can achieve that amount by purchasing gift certificates to use later.

Theo Fitanides Joins Native Here Nursery Team

In his first day as the new manager Theo, a 2010 graduate from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in Biological Sciences, walked through the nursery with Charli, Lesley, Janice, Steve and other volunteers reminiscing about his volunteer time potting plants, watering and seed collecting.  

In his new position, Theo will continue working with our volunteers to propagate local native plants for retail customers, restoration efforts, public agencies and annual plant sales and events.  Theo also has hopes of having the nursery foster greater community involvement in local habitat restoration.


Volunteers Needed - The nursery is operated almost entirely by volunteers. At present it is open for volunteer training and sales to the public on Tuesdays noon to 3 pm, Friday mornings 9 am to noon and on Saturdays 10 am to 2 pm. Rain or strong winds close the nursery.
