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.
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 Stewardship Coordinator, Iris Clearwater, firstname.lastname@example.org. The Mission Blue Nursery is located in Brisbane near 3401 Bayshore Blvd (map and directions).
In addition to plant sales where the public is welcome, the nursery is open by appointment on Thursdays-Saturdays with a $100 minimum order. Call the SBMW office at 415-467-6631 for your appointment.
