Habitat Potential Nursery

Back in 2009, Josiah and a few friends began with a vision of supplying the Bay Area with much-needed native plants. It ended up becoming a habitat restoration project of its own. With the help of heavy machinery, they completely transformed the barren sheep pasture into a native willow riparian woodland. Through careful study, hard work, and dedication, it has become a testament to the ability to revitalize a degraded habitat. Through the process, there have been an untold number of lessons about what it is to grow native plants, create native habitat, and organize a space for maximum efficiency. It has become a thriving addition to the local ecosystem, complete with breeding songbirds, amphibians, and dozens of specialized native pollinator species.

In order to restore the nursery, we took the lowest spot in the nursery and accentuated it. We worked off the contours of the land for the purposes of watering.
