Root & Rise Nursery
Our nursery specializes in native and non-invasive plants, and is made possible through volunteers and program participants. Many of our plants are cultivated solely for Pāpā Forest Project outplanting, and many are cultivated for Root & Rise fundraising. The nursery is located at our South Kona location, mauka Miloli'i.
Current available plants include: maile, ala’ala wai nui (pepperomia), ’ōhelo papa, ‘uki’uki (Dianella sandwicense), and naio papa.
Hours of Operation: By appointment only - call 617-543-8065
Our nursery is endorsed by Plant Pono, an organization that promotes green businesses that use, sell, and cultivate plants that protect Hawai'i's exquisite and rare ecosystem by cultivating non-invasive plants and educating about the importance of such.
