We are not your average nursery!
We have passionately searched to re-discover the living, historic plants still scattered across Northern California, left over from the Gold Rush. We have personally found these trees and have taken cuttings directly from the ancient, 100+ year old grandmother trees that are still alive in these ghostly orchards. We are a very small nursery and offer very rare and exclusive plants, some we may have only just found. So, there are a limited supply of some varieties. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
We are a 501(c)3 Non Profit and focus on Preserving the living legacy bequeathed to us and the biodiversity necessary for a resilient food economy in the future. We are searching for Land and Resources to grow our Nursery and look forward to offering more rare and endangered plants from our past, in the future.
Plant Pickups are pre-scheduled at

NOTE ON SHIPPING
The box for shipping is 8″x8″x48″ The shipping will be the same for 1 tree to 12 bare root trees, up to 40 lbs. We are based in Nevada City, Ca. In general, to ship inside California is between $35-$70. To the Central USA is about $60-90. To ship to the East Coast is about $80-$120. If you just get one tree it is quite expensive, but if you get a few trees it’s not so bad. We make no money on shipping and these are UPS Shipping costs.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!
Thank you Everyone for supporting this project! While the nursery sales provide approximately 25% of our operating budget, we rely on donors and occasional grants. In the past we have received generous grants from UNFI, the Gaia Foundation, and the Bill Graham Foundation. With the pandemic there has been a drop off in grants and donations. So, we are grateful for your purchases and generous donations.
In the face of modern industrial agriculture we have lost 95% of our genetic diversity, and with your help all of us are saving the very best gems still growing throughout California’s Gold Rush Countrysides.

All of our heirloom grapes are grown from dormant cuttings, on their own root, in 4"x12" containers using soil and compost. They are not grafted. Grapes are easy to grow, tolerant of most soils and climates. The sweetest fruit comes from the sunniest locations. Grapes are self-fertile and do not require another variety for fertilization. Training to a trellis increases productivity, flavor and disease resistance. Grapes have a very low chilling requirement, and can be planted in mild and cold winter sites.
