The Greenway Native Plant Nursery is home to nearly 16,000 native trees and shrubs. From the very start of their journey with the Greenway Trust, these trees are cared for by volunteers. At the nursery, volunteers pot these trees and shrubs, and after they have grown in our nursery for about two years, volunteers will plant these plants again, this time in their final homes in urban forests, parks, and open spaces throughout the Greenway landscape.
Week by week, our nursery is becoming more and more ready for the 20,000 additonal plants coming in for future projects. This week, we are looking to finish organizing our nursery in Lake Sammamish State Park, cleaning up some of the downed debris from this past weekend, and to prepping some of our bare root plant material. This is a fun event for everyone, and we are looking forward to organizing with you!
