As a small backyard operation, we’re able to rely heavily on manual care and avoid use of pesticides. All of our pots have been previously used and were donated donated to our nursery by our surrounding community. Although most are plastic, you can rest assured that we’re trying to give another breath of life to materials that would very likely otherwise have already ended up in a landfill.
We hope to gradually move completely away from plastic over the course of the next couple of years. We are actively experimenting with additional growing methods that completely negate the use of plastic and materials from extractive industries. We experimented with offering some plants in pot-less soil blocks last summer and hope to have soil block offerings this season with additional species and new growing media variations.
