WNC's Permaculture Nursery

Specializing in Useful, Phytonutrient, Food, and Medicinal Plants

About Useful Plants Nursery

Useful Plants Nursery is a permaculture-based nursery specializing in useful, phytonutritional, food, and medicine plants well-adapted to our Southern Appalachian mountains and surrounding bioregions. Our plants are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides at our nursery located at Earthaven Ecovillage.

We believe that growing your own food and medicine plants is a vitally important strategy and practice for regaining control over our collective and personal lives, our health, and our individual and bioregional economic well being. Our nursery is dedicated to putting those beliefs into practice and truly creating "Liberation through Abundance" as we serve your needs for healthy, useful landscape plants, and work together to reweave the web of life.

We finally entered the 21st century

Breaking news: Useful Plants Nursery has a cell signal!

Cell service at Earthaven has been spotty at best. We’re very excited that the nursery now has a consistent cell signal!

What does this mean for you? You can call Lyndon during business hours and we can accept credit cards!

Though we just started being able to use a credit card reader here, it works great so far. You can still pay with cash or check, which always works.

Lyndon’s cell phone can receive phone calls or texts at (828) 778-0773 during business hours. So, call or send a text if you have any questions or would like to stop by the nursery.

We can also receive emails at the nursery.

You can also contact us at our regular phone number, (828) 669-6517. It’s a land line, so it won’t receive texts or email, only calls. Outside of business hours, it's a great place to leave a voicemail.

Please call before you head into the mountains because you will likely lose reception before you get here. There will be times when you will need to bring cash or check to the nursery, as our phone and Square reader will be at shows and away from the nursery. See show dates below.
