Greenland Nursery has operated in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park since the early 1900s. In its current form, the facility produces native plants for the City's natural lands management group, with a focus on local ecotype trees and shrubs. We will discuss the plants we grow, take a look at the facilities and go over the seed collection, propagation, and production techniques we employ as a small-scale municipal nursery.
