Integrity: We sincerely care. Our experience and education are authentic. Our reputation is why we persist. Our clients are long-term genuine friends.
Honesty: The core of our integrity. Truth, always. We don’t guess or b.s. If we don’t KNOW the answer we find it. If a plant won’t thrive where a client wants it, we’ll offer a better choice.
Curiosity: Why? How? When? Where? What? If we don’t know, we want to and we want to share what we’ve learned from our experiences. We are always learning more.
Gratitude: We appreciate where we live and who we live with. We are grateful for our natural environment and staff. We appreciate our clients and all that we learn from them.
Enthusiasm: Dang! We LOVE what we get to do every day and we love to share what we’ve learned. “There is always NEXT spring…” to learn again, to try something new, to share again.
Partnership: Our staff, our growers and our clients who we learn from and who keep us going.
Service: “Everyone Serves” each other, our clients, other staff, our vendors, ourselves.10678 Donner Pass Rd
Villager Nursery is a relaxed and intriguing retail space with instructive and inviting pathways through demonstration gardens with art, pottery, and an astounding display of the best plants available for our challenging conditions. Owners and staff are people who love plants, who care about their coworkers’, friends’ and clients’ successes and who graciously share their knowledge. We maintain and modify our gardens and plant selections as our gardens grow and our clients’ interests evolve. We reduce water use, recycle, use only natural and organic fertilizers and pest controls. We collect seed and experiment with the widest variety of locally native plants to offer and use them whenever possible. We provide the best plants, adapted to our harsh conditions, for every situation. We continue to learn and to use every opportunity to educate each other, our customers and anyone curious or interested.
Villager Nursery’s goals are, as always, to: remain the Sierra Nevada’s best source for honest and reliable high-Sierra gardening information; grow, search-out and offer the widest and most interesting variety of native, extreme-climate, edible and cold-hardy plants for the Sierras; provide organic fertilizers, appropriate soil amendments and sound advice; and give our clients everything they need to succeed and to feel inspired by their mountain planters, gardens and landscapes.
Villager Nursery also actively supports California Native Plant Society’s mission of “conserving California native plants and their natural habitats, and increasing understanding, appreciation, and horticultural use of native plants … through education, plant science, advocacy, land stewardship and native plant gardening.”
