We meet at Vallejo Flood and Wastewater District every Monday, and Thursday 10am - Noon, to grow native plants at our 6,000 square foot nursery. The nursery is operated by the Willis Linn Jepson Chapter of the California Native Plant Society using all volunteer labor. The chapter represents Society members that reside in Solano County We sell these plants at our semi-annual sales. The money is used to fund native plant conservation activities in. No skills are required, but volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes and face masks. We limit the number of volunteers at the nursery to promote social distancing. Weekly tasks include maintenance and cleaning of propagation area, potting up plants, cleaning used pots, preparing cuttings and seeds, etc. Volunteers can also help with occasional workdays or the semi-annual sales.
