Our Mission

Our mission is to teach others about the importance of native plants to our local ecosystems and the impact that planting natives has on our environment.

Native plants clean our air better.

Native plants support our local wildlife and insect populations.

Native plants remove toxins from the soil and turn carbon dioxide into oxygen more efficiently.

A healthy insect population leads to a healthy bird population.

Birds help keep our mice and rat populations under control which is essential to reducing the risk of a plague or national epidemic.

In the United States, 95% of all our bird and pollinator habitats have been destroyed due to commercial and residential building, pesticide use and cropland use for feeding cattle.

This can mean within a 40-60 year time frame we can lose 80-90% of all our bird and insect populations if we do not give back to nature what we have taken.


Our Pledge

We here at Lupine Gardens, LLC pledge to offer our customers the highest quality chemical-free plants and produce as well as the best customer service possible.

We do not use neonicotinoids, systemics, chemical insecticides, herbicides or fungicides.

Insect control is done naturally with biological control such as release of predators (ladybugs, nematodes, parasitic wasps, etc.).
