We need people to transport potted plants, move plants, label plants, advise customers, tally purchases, take money, and clean up.  Most tasks require no botanical knowledge.

 Native Plant Nursery Information

The chapter’s nursery is located at to the Old Freshwater Farms Nursery site, now owned by the Northcoast Regional Land Trust and renamed the Freshwater Farms Reserve, located at 5851 Myrtle Ave. (or Old Arcata Road). This recent move enables us to have the opportunity, for the first time, for year round sales of our plants on site thru the Kneeland Glen Farm Stand, open daily 12-6. 

Here's the list of what's at the nursery. We have many of these plants available for sale at the farm stand. But we can make sure that what you want is set aside for you at the farm stand if you email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . (Please do not phone the farm stand.)

We continue to have regularly scheduled workdays at our nursery on Wednesdays from 10 - 1.  If you would like to help out at the nursery, please see the contact information below. Hope to see you at our  nursery location!


PLANT PROPOGATION PROGRAM AND NURSERY NEEDS VOLUNTEERS help propagate and grow native plants for our chapter's plant sale and farm stand sales. Our plant sales fund the majority of our chapter's activities; events such as the Wildflower Show; chapter meeting lectures and presentations; publications such as our quartetly newsletter and our page in EcoNews; provides scholarships for local botany students; supports statewide endeavours; conservation education and other worthy efforts.

The nursery volunteers work every Wednesday from 10 - 1ish at the nursery site.  We also work additional days, such as Sundays, as needed. On our workdays at the nursery we work on starting new plants from seeds or cuttings;, transplant seedlings into larger containers as they grow; trim, weed, water, feed and label all plants; update and make new signage as needed as well as other activities needed to get ready for the upcoming plant sales.  We also keepthe plants out on the Farm stand watered and looking good.   

The Chapter is always working on increasing the number of species of plants that we grow for our plant sales. In the fall, volunteers are needed to collect seed in the wild for the nursery crew to propagate and grow. If you can provide collected seed, please clean it, indicate where and when you collected it and either drop it off at the nursery location during our work time, or contact as Chris as below.

We have also been doing dig and divides from community members established landscapes and potting up seedlings or divisions from those landscapes that we obtain for later sales. If you have a landscape that can provide such plants, contact Chris.

If you have time to volunteer to help start seeds, to transplant seedlings or to help to keep our plants healthy and happy, you can contribute to our chapter's biggest fund-raisers! To help out contact Chris Beresford, Nursery Manager, at 707 826-0259 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Please note: Please do not drop off containers at the nursery. We are unable to reuse containers at this time.  If you would like to provide cleaned and sterlizied 4" square pots or 1-gallons, please let Chris know.
