Contact the Nursery

Our Native Plant Nursery, stationed at Foothills Park since 2003, plays a fundamental role in our efforts to create healthy natural habitat across the Silicon Valley.

Our nursery grows a diversity of locally native species from seeds and cuttings gathered within Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Santa Cruz Counties, then distributes plants for reintroduction within their watershed of origin. We supply plants for our own habitat restoration projects, as well as those of major land managers in our region.

Grassroots Ecology employs best management practices to ensure clean nursery stock. We also grow rare and threatened native species and participate in native plant research.
