Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good nursery in Ohio. I'm in east central Ohio but would be willing to travel. I've been ordering a lot of plants online. I'd like to find a good nursery that understands permaculture with people I could ask for guidance.

Thanks,
Jeff

Jeff,

Have you had any luck finding anyone? There are lots of us who garden and are flirting with sustainability, particularly in the Johnstown, Mt. Vernon, Fredericktown corridor. I'm not a full-blown permie convert, but I'm gradually moving in that direction.

I am in that area, between Hanover and Fallsburg. I've mostly been finding resources online. There is a permaculture nursery in Cincinnati, but that's a bit of a haul. I've been ordering plant cuttings online as it's much more economical and growing from seed where I can.

No, it is run by this-land.org. It is only open on weekends and is currently closed until September I think.

I just saw them featured in a Farm Bureau article. What did you find disappointing about them?

Richard, they had few perennials, not that many plants at all really.
So I thought I must have just come at a bad time, yet inquiries into commen permaculture plants were met with disinterested replies in the negative. I finally simply asked for recommendations for edible landscaping (the term "permaculture" did not seem to ring a bell with them). They directed me to some sad looking currents, and the small selection of fruit trees.
Even their annuals were over priced.
They did have quince, for what its worth. ..

Check out the new thread called "Ohio Permies (people) and Ohio Resources" -- you might find what you are looking for there.
