Rick & Karen Jordan, Deerwood Nursery

Restoration Plant Project – Grant Award: $3,000
“This grant helped us stabilize the creek bank and gave us another avenue for the nursery market. I particularly like the project because I would like to establish an aquatic population in the creek (now that the banks are stable).” ~ Rick Jordan

The Jordans have planted field-grown trees & shrubs and vegetables since 2001. With their award, they will diversify their plant base, taking advantage of the growing needs for plants for stream bank restoration projects in their area.

The banks of three streams of their property provide excellent habitat for restoration-type material, which they will sell to individuals and public agencies.
