Providing a large selection of native trees, shrubs, grasses, and flowers for every project for home, large-scale, and contract services. Our nursery has produced over 350,000 plants since its inception utilizing organic and chemical-free practices.



The BRN Native Plant Nursery is a plant and seed propagation/production and research facility. The nursery is located on the northern five acres of the Native Seed/SEARCH farm and includes six growing structures and a small two-acre production field with the ability to expand. The nursery has worked with over 400 species of native plants for the public, federal agencies, and restoration practitioners. A small team of BRN horticulture staff conducts propagation activities at the nursery.


Goals of the BRN Native Plant Nursery include:


  • Providing a regionally diverse selection of plants available for restoration services through contracted grow-outs and sale of plants to the public 

  • Educating the public, partners, and students about native plants of the region, propagation, and their role in biodiversity and land restoration

  • Communicating with partner nurseries to minimize redundancy in plant production and establish protocols that consider all levels of biodiversity

  • Developing and leading research opportunities for regional native plant production, for container and in-ground farm production

  • Providing consultation and training opportunities for professionals and citizens in native plant propagation, greenhouse management, and restoration planting services

  • Coordinating with multiple public and private partners who seek restoration services in order to “get out in front” of restoration needs and accelerate coordinated habitat improvements
