Community Nurseries

Community nurseries are a source of inexpensive plants for environmental restoration, beautification or wildlife en- hancement. The following pages lay out the steps you can take to start your own nursery, large or small. Since many of our more unusual native trees and shrubs are not available commercially, a community nursery may be the only source of these valuable species. The nurseries already set up across the province are promoting the use of native trees and shrubs, which must be present if we hope to preserve and restore natural ecosystems.
