It began with a bird.
Our founder loved to kayak the bayous and bays of the Gulf Coast. There, the thousands of birds migrating overhead sparked an interest in the region's ecology. She became a serious birder and wanted to create a bird paradise in her backyard.
Except it wasn't easy.
Organizations like the Native Plant Society of Texas and Houston Audubon offer incredible information about which plants support wildlife. But finding them for purchase was a different matter - and not everyone was willing like she was to drive far away to specialty nurseries and plant sales.
She saw the opportunity.
Our first pop-up sale took place in the Fall of 2021. It was so successful we had another one shortly after. We met our goal to help Houstonians improve habitat through successful DIY landscaping with native plants.
Onward and upward.
Since that first sale, we have expanded our network of growers to offer a greater variety of plants. We will continue our model of having seasonal sales with online pre-orders and pickup in Southwest Houston. Our customers inspire us every day with their commitment to saving the environment, one yard at a time.
