A major part of our mission is to make native plants available to the public. While we work to increase demand for native plants that could support local growers and nurseries, we propagate dozens of our favorite local species for sale at our greenhouse and at spring plant festivals such as Festival des Fleurs in Lafayette, LA and Sunset Herb Festival in Sunset, LA. We also sell to nurseries and directly to landscapers.
If you are a grower of natives, let us send you customers!
The June Walker Memorial Greenhouse
We propagate plants from seeds and cuttings from local sources and members at the June Walker Memorial Greenhouse, which was bequeathed to ANPP by the family of our friend and founding member of ANPP. Thanks to her family, generous donations of time and money from ANPP members and friends, and a fruitful collaboration with NUNU Arts and Culture Collective, June’s greenhouse is up and running at Teche Farm EcoCampus, 1046 Main Hwy in Arnaudville.
June’s Greenhouse Dedication on September 20, 2018 was featured on a local news channel.
Join our Propagation Team
With a dedicated propagation team, we have been able to bring thousands and thousands of plants to market since 2017.
We acknowledge the immense value of sustained volunteerism and native plant sourcing and propagation is to our mission. While most of our members gladly donate their time and plants without expectation of reward, we offer a credit program for sustained volunteerism and plant donations to reduce any burden associated with promoting our mission. This program offers the opportunity to receive plants or membership dues waivers in exchange for these generous donations.
