The mission of SacValley CNPS Nursery (aka 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. Workdays are Mondays & Wednesdays, and our summer work hours are 10:00-noon. To keep everyone safe: If you are unvaccinated, we ask that you also wear a mask and maintain a 6-foot distance.
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. Nursery and Gardens Volunteer Basics (site map included)
The Nursery uses best management practices to maintain the health of its nursery plants, including providing protection from Phytophthora.
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.
The Sacramento Valley Chapter’s monthly e-newsletter contains chapter announcements and upcoming events, and each issue is posted on the Newsletter page and emailed to all newsletter subscribers. You do not need to be a member to receive our eNewsletter. Sign up here.
