Grow Native Nursery in the Veterans Garden
Dear native plant friends,
We are sorry to announce that after five years of operating as the only all-California native plant nursery serving the greater Westwood community, Grow Native Nursery at the Veterans Garden will be closing. The last day of operation was Sunday, May 10, 2015.
Factors related to the financial sustainability of the nursery and veterans training program, combined with events beyond our control at the Veterans Administration, led the Trustees of Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden to this decision. We believe that it is in RSABG’s best interest to end our operations now rather than wait for the future use of the site to be determined as the VA-GLAHS undertakes what will likely be a lengthy but ultimately very constructive and valuable master planning process.
For your gardens, we refer you to the Theodore Payne Foundation in Sun Valley or (although it's far away) Grow Native Nursery in Claremont. Ask your local garden centers to carry California native plants, too! We will miss seeing you.
