OPEN 10-4 Saturdays

Here you will find a different atmosphere than most nurseries.
Step into a more relaxed environment. Listen to the birds and take note of the diversity of important pollinator plants growing here. What you might think is a weed, is most likely an edible plant or serves some benefit here (though I do have some pesky plants that get ahead of me, FOR CERTAIN!)
We are trained to think things we don't "plant" are weeds. Wrong. Some of them are extremely important for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and more.
P1050022Ask me...I'll do my best to describe my years of observations.
Permaculture is a broad term. I've practiced it here in my own way for 14 years now and I am quite pleased with what has evolved here. I live here, so expect to see my projects and works in progress. Check calendar for hours.
IMG_2372I welcome volunteers. I can take volunteers on most Saturdays 10-4, (and Sunday's in April/May/June)  I'll do my best to share information with you in trade for help either cleaning up an area, harvesting a wild salad or potting up plants. I might even send you home with a plant or two.
I've used tons and tons woodchips to remediate the soils, because the woodchips sprout fungi and pull out the toxins, restoring the soil fertility and the underground food web network. I let plants decay on the ground as it enriches and benefits the soils mycology. No one cleans up the forests, and they are thriving when man is not harvesting aggressively.
I grow many plants here, from divisions or cuttings and I only buy from responsible conscious growers, locally.
I look forward to your visit.
Call ahead for EGGS, honey, Wild harvest salad mix or consulting.  Consulting with you about your gardens during my open business hours will have a $35 hr fee. Coming to your site will incur a different rate and I can give you that rate sheet via email.
Check calendar to be certain we are open or call/text 206-819-8544 to schedule a visit.
