Welcome to Native Here Nursery
We have a lot of fun and exciting things coming up this spring and would love for you to join us.
Take a look at what’s next:
As the weather warms up and rain is not in the forecast, the nursery
is in need of more volunteers trained to water the plants. The nursery
is divided into sections that take from 45 minutes to a little over an
hour to water. Watering in the morning is best, but not always
possible. If you have an hour or two each week that you would like to
spend nurturing plants in a peaceful setting, consider attending a
training session on watering.
Other volunteer tasks include sowing seeds, potting up plants,
grooming and pruning.
Training sessions for new volunteers will be held this month from
10:30 am to noon on Saturdays and Tuesdays:
Saturday, March 3: 10:30- noon Learn how to pot seedlings and
Tuesday, March 6: 10:30-noon repeat of March 3 training
Saturday, March 10: 10:30-noon Learn watering philosophy and

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!
