Mission Blue Nursery
Working with community volunteers and school groups, our primary objective is to grow locally adapted, California native plants for our habitat restoration projects on San Bruno Mountain and for native gardens in the Bay Area. We only grow plants that are native to, and adapted to, San Bruno Mountain and the northern San Francisco Peninsula. At the same time we are providing educational opportunities for volunteers to learn about the propagation and care of these native plants, their uses and their significance to the local ecosystems.
The nursery plays a unique role in our Stewardship Volunteer Programs, which provide the opportunity for volunteers to engage in the full circle of restoration on the mountain - from site preparation, plant propagation, to outplanting and site follow-up maintenance.
At Nursery Updates you can see what's been going on.
Mission Blue Nursery is currently growing plants for the following projects:
The nursery is managed by San Bruno Mountain Watch's Stewardship Director, Joe Cannon, and Nursery Manager, Lawrence Fernandez. The Mission Blue Nursery is located in Brisbane (map and directions).
The nursery is not open to the public, but we will have seasonal Native Plant Sales where the public is welcome. Funds raised will support the nursery's operation and the overall stewardship program.
