Nursery News
Built upon an abandoned lot, LandHealth’s Native Plant Nursery aims to rebuild a natural habitat in Philadelphia. How does LandHealth work with institutions and individuals throughout the city in landscaping with native plants?

As spring progresses, our nursery is teaming up with volunteers to help grow native plants.

Shout out to Steve Jones, the nursery manager, who has been there day in and day out to make sure everything is running smoothly.
