2/5 What does Nature and Nurture do?
Like many agricultural businesses, there is a diversity of enterprises occurring at Nature and Nurture farm. In general, the products we offer are #heirloom #seeds, #organic
produce & #shiitake
mushrooms, and nursery stock, while we also offer landscaping and education services.
Nature and Nurture Seeds offers heirloom and open-pollinated seeds adapted to the #GreatLakes region. The seed catalog includes nearly 150 varieties of #vegetables, #flowers, #fruit,
Through our seed company, we work to increase organic seed production in the Great Lakes Region.
In addition to seeds, we also produce gourmet, log-grown shiitake mushrooms. These mushrooms are grown outdoors, mostly on #oak
logs, a method that produces exceptionally delicious mushrooms.
A byproduct of our seed production trials, we also grow certified organic produce to sell at @ArgusFarmStop and some restaurants around Ann Arbor. Our major crops are #HeirloomTomatoes,
greens, and herbs.
Off the farm, Nature and Nurture has provided organic landscaping services in neighborhoods around the Ann Arbor area for 17 years. Our focus is on #edible
plant species, and we offer fruit trees and other nursery stock from our farm-based plant nursery.
Finally, we have experience teaching classes on #OrganicGardening, #SeedSaving, #MushroomGrowing,
fruit production and more! We even partner with the Nature Learning Community to offer #NatureBasedEducation
to children on the farm.
