About Gold Rush Nursery

We closed the nursery in 2018 and are no longer growing or selling plants.  We're still offering landscape consultation and planting design services though so please get in touch if you have any questions.

 

Gold Rush's mission statement

In a nutshell, our mission's growing fun and exciting plants and doing the right thing by the environment!  Or to put it a little more formally, our mission is:

   To grow quality plants using sustainable production methods;
   To promote regionally appropriate sustainable landscaping practices,
   To love what we do and have fun doing it!

 

How we chose the name Gold Rush Nursery

Gold Rush is a fitting name for the nursery because many of the plants we grow are from regions that were, or still are, gold producers - California, South Africa and Australia.

We actually named the nursery, though, for our dog, Java.  Gold Rush is the line of golden retrievers she was from.  Java had shovels for paws and loved to dig for gophers.  She was always wet and dirty, LOVED hanging out in the nursery and was our chief meeter-and-greeter!  Sadly she died from multiple myeloma (a form of blood cancer) in 2011 L  .

We now have another golden meet-and-greet girl - Sera (short for Moonlight Serenade because she likes to bark at the moon!).  Just like Java, she's always wet and dirty!
