Putah Creek Nursery grows native species sourced within the Putah-Cache watershed. Our community-centered nursery educates and involves volunteers and interns to grow native plant species from seed to maturity. We grow for restoration projects and gardeners alike.
Our nursery is nestled along Putah Creek near Lake Solano Park. We grow over 120 local native tree, shrub, forb and grass species. Interested in purchasing plants from Putah Creek Nursery? Get in touch with us for pricing and plant availability.
We run regular volunteer days every Wednesday from 9am to noon and involve volunteers in all of our nursery tasks, including seed collection, seed processing, seed starting, transplanting, pruning, staking, and other plant care activities. Volunteer days are a fun and social way to see the nursery and learn about native plant propagation. Come join us!
