Team,

I am planning a food hedge and a Geoff Lawton style swale based food forest starting in the spring. I would like to purchase locally as much as possible. Any recommendations on local growers / suppliers?

Thank you

-Mark

Awesome two nurseries for rootstocks (or trees, shrubs, etc.):

http://www.raintreenursery.com/



http://www.burntridgenursery.com/ + some nut seeds



For truly local seeds:

Jocelyn, the first vendor you selected has only 800 selections...

Thank you!

I suppose it depends on what you mean by local, but you really have tons of options in Orgeon:

Adaptive Seeds
Wild Garden Seed
Peace Seeds / Peace Seedlings
Forestfarm
One Green World

And those are just my favorites! There are easily dozens more.

I put my list here..
http://www.stewardshipinstitute.info/wiki/index.php?title=Seeds_and_nurseries

All I'd add to previous, is Fourth Corner Nurseries for natives, which can fill a nice niche in the understory.

I wrote some thoughts about living fence here:

If your hedges and planting are getting to larger numbers (50+), you should also look at the local wholesale/commercial options:
http://www.lawyernursery.com/
http://www.treco.nu/
http://www.copenhavenfarms.com/

All are close enough to pick up if you want to save on shipping..

Paul, I'd love to see what's happened with your hedgerow/living fence since you posted about it at your website.

Hi Mark,

I know this is an old post but if you're still looking, my permaculture teacher in Ashland runs an organic, permaculture specific seed company and ships seeds all over the world. His name is Chuck Burr and here is his site: http://www.restorationseeds.com/

Tell him Joe DiMeglio sent you, he's a great guy and very knowledgeable.

Cheers, Joe

Depending upon the quantity that you need to order, you might want to look into http://willamettenurseries.com/

They have a lot of variety in standard and and clonal root stocks at very good pricing and they have exceptional customer service. I just received some apple rootstock the other day and I am very happy with it and would have no hesitation ordering from them again.

Team, Anyone have a source for Ground Nuts? I would like to buy as local as possible, but I have not found any yet. I'll take them from anywhere at this point.

Looks like I'll be coming back to this tread every spring!

Team, I found and ordered from these places;

http://www.nortonnaturals.com/product-p/aa.htm

https://www.oikostreecrops.com/Perennial-Vegetables/Sunchokes/c-1-156-167/


I have no affiliation to any of these places.

Found a new one to add Native Foods Nursery which looks awesome!

Plus, Beaver Lake Nursery - though is that one wholesale or retail?

If this applies, see also Nurseries in and around Olympia.

(FYI, Lawyer Nursery closed its doors in 2018.)
