This year, we've got another late fall / early winter tour of Moosa Creek Nursery in Valley Center, where all the magic happens for many the native plants you can find at many retail nurseries (Walter Andersen, Mission Hills nursery, City Farmers, more) from San Diego to LA. Last year, Owners Su & Hank Kraus showed our group extraordinary access to the grounds - from the seed shed, greenhouses, potting / cloning areas, soil / mulch mix, and main nursery grounds. Locations and methods to be seen will be up to the tour guide.

Whether you are looking for insight on getting your seedlings / cuttings to root or just trying to improve your native plant landscape, this tour is an amazing opportunity to learn some tricks of the trade. This is a rare opportunity to access a for-profit business that has really positively impacted the environment and our communities. Get a preview at and look for where you can purchase Moosa Creek native plants.

CARPOOL: For this trip, we will meet at 9:00 to 9:15 AM at the Fashion Valley Transit Center at Fashion Valley mall nearest Fashion Valley Rd. Parking is free for 24 hours and occasionally monitored by roving security. Be prepared to drive, as I have 2-3 spaces available in my truck. Moosa Creek is a wholesale nursery, so if you want to purchase plants, come to the October CNPS Plant Sale or visit their retail tables (above).
