Native Here Nursery is resuming its native gardening educational talks beginning Saturday, October 16, after a hiatus of more than a year due to the pandemic. In light of all the interest in native gardening during this time, our first topic will be how to get started using familiar, well-loved, easy-to-grow native plants. Watch the Bay Leaf newsletter, the nursery and chapter websites, and our Meetup page for announcements of future talks. Our talks are held in Native Here’s outdoor classroom with social distancing and masks required.
Native Here Nursery’s mission is at least as much about teaching people how to grow native plants as it is about selling them. There’s information to help you learn about our local plants on Native Here’s website, in our chapter’s Bay Leaf newsletter articles, and on the plant information cards around our nursery.
If you already know of particular plants you want, you can check our online shop and buy them ahead of time to be sure you won’t be disappointed. You can also browse the website for new ideas. And you can shop in the nursery any Saturday, 10 am–2 pm, including when you come to pick up the plants you ordered online.
