Welcome to Native Here Nursery
We have a lot of fun and exciting things coming up this winter and would love for you to join us.
Take a look at what’s next:
Native Here Nursery
February 24, 2018: 10 am to 2 pm
101 Golf Course Drive, Tilden Park
Trilliums are worth waiting for! They take several years of growth, disappearing entirely later in the spring and summer, reappearing in winter before flowering. They are a wonderful color “treat” in the woodland understory, often associated with redwoods. Limit 2 per customer on this day.
11 am Talk about Native Trilliums:
John Danielsen, Propagator of native plants at Native Here Nursery.
Come and bring your lunch or a snack to enjoy while listening to John’s talk, then continue shopping for your favorite plants!
If you are not looking for Trillium, we will be offering over 200 species of other local native plants for your delight, including a selection of manzanitas, trees, riparian and grassland plants featured during previous Special Events.
We want to thank our amazing volunteers for all the hard work they put in at the nursery this past year. We look forward to another year of growth and restoration! Also, take a look at this article in the Bay Leaf with a recap of last year and some info on what’s coming up: Bay Leaf Article
A little bit more about what we do and how you can get involved:
As you may know, our nursery operates and thrives thanks to all our amazing volunteers. We are always welcoming
and encouraging new people to come by and join the team! Here are a few things volunteers have been working on and also things we’d love more help with:
- Dry brushing pots. We’ve been able to solarize so many pots in order to sanitize them and we are thankful to those who have spent countless hours brushing the dirty pots.
- Potting up plants
- Watering! We always need people to water the plants, especially during the summer. Please let us know if you’d like to water weekly or even be a substitute for our regulars.
- Weeding and tending to the areas around the nursery.
Volunteering is a great opportunity to connect with others that love the outdoors and all the native plants within our communities. Charli and Jon are a dynamic duo that facilitate an amazing environment to learn and grow. Please let us know if you have any questions about getting involved and feel free to stop by anytime during our open hours!
