Native Cultures: The Seri People at Tree of Life – 9am to 4pm
Tree of Life Nursery is honored to host a group of artisans from the indigenous Seri (Comcáac) tribe, hailing from the arid coast of Sonora, Mexico. These Seri artisans will have their finest items available for sale, and in the spirit of “fair trade,” 100 percent of the sale proceeds will stay with the artisans. Stay tuned here for more information.
The ideal time to plant is upon us! With cooler weather and rain (hopefully) ahead of us, it is a great time to get your natives in the ground. To celebrate we’ll be having an 11% off sale on plants on 11/11!

In the holiday spirit, we will be serving light refreshments.
