Elderberry Farms Native Plant Nursery
Elderberry Farms has been responsibly growing local native plants since 2007.
The mission of Elderberry Farms is to promote awareness of the benefits of native plant habitat, encourage community involvement, and provide a source of local native plants for gardening and restoration projects.
The nursery is located at 2140 Chase Drive in Rancho Cordova (on the American River Parkway at Soil Born Farms) and is operated entirely by volunteers. CNPS membership is not required to volunteer. Please contact Chris Lewis with questions about the nursery and gardens or to sign up as a volunteer.
The nursery is currently in production mode and plants are not available for purchase. However, if you would like to become acquainted with the plants we grow, you are welcome to drop by on one of our Mini Workdays (details below).
Video interns work on YouTube.
