FOUNDATION: Without the plants and people who know how to use them, the native plant movement cannot advance the cause of restoration of natural and urban areas. Yet the native plant industry is still in its infancy, working with nonprofit partners to educate the public about the importance of native plants to general sustainability. Many native plant grower pioneers are nearing the end of their careers, and facing the same challenges that all small farmers face in expanding and transitioning their operations. The Native Plant Horticulture Foundation was established to help strengthen and expand the industry by creating more demand for and supply of native plants, and developing more native plant professionals. Help us make it happen.
