Our mission is to make useful plants available at wholesale prices to aspiring Permaculturists all over this island. We want to make it affordable and convenient for people to get the plants and information they need to create a sustainable food forest on their land. These multipurpose plants are valuable assets as nutritious, delicious, hardy, medicinal, timber, or fiber.

The nursery is open by APPOINTMENT ONLY and there is a minimum purchase of $25. We do not deliver or ship plants.
Please note: This pricelist is subject to change.

We offer instructional, guided tours of our farm to individuals or groups. The subject matter varies from agroforestry to permaculture to off-grid systems depending on the interests of the participants. We ask for a contribution of $6 per person, with a minimum of $30 for the tour.
