Borderlands Restoration manages a full-service Native Plant Nursery & Seed Lab, providing restoration practitioners & residents in the Madrean Archipelago eco-region with a source of high-quality native plants, seeds, and consulting services.
The Borderlands Mission:
To foster ecological and cultural place-based learning and leadership, restore and support healthy, regenerating water sources and flourishing plant and animal communities, and support prosperous borderland communities by expanding a vibrant restoration economy.
I give this seed source 10 out of 10 acorns for the methods they use in every facet of their work. Their seeds are ethically harvested from organic farms and wildlands by trained staff, and chosen for their most useful traits, such as creating habitat for endangered pollinators, reducing erosion, and ease of care.
I visited the plant nursery in 2016 and was delighted with the huge selection and low prices. They were beginning to grow out walnut and pecans from local historic gardens, and were very interested in propagating pomegranates, figs, apples, and quince that early settlers brought to the region. All stock looked healthy and viable. They also offer complete permaculture design and erosion control consultations, including materials and labor if desired. Just a marvelous organization worthy of support.
Once my site is ready for planting, I will report my experiences with their seeds and nursery stock.
I'm all tasted up for a BLT! This tiny ad wants a monte cristo!
