Santa Ana Nursery Field Trip

Feb 29, 2024 | Experiences, Information

Mike Halverson, native plant expert, just hosted a fascinating field trip for the Sandoval Extension Master Gardeners. 40 Master Gardeners, interns, and mentors toured the green houses and the outdoor growing areas.

Species grown at the nursery are primarily native to New Mexico and grown from seed collected regionally by Mike and his staff. The nursery mission includes support of pueblo farmers, cultivation of traditional plants used ceremonially, and species grown for restoration projects on native land and areas managed by the National Park Service.
