COVID-19



COVID-19  Response and Nursery Hours

Our core values shape how we are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic:  We are committed to the health of the planet and the greater good.  We value being professional and customer-focused. We create a positive work environment and a unique haven for staff and clients.  We show great care, grit, and determination.

As an agricultural business exempted for the Stay at Home order by the Ohio Department of Health, we have remained open to grow and tend to our crops.  We are OPEN to the public for those comfortable with strolling around our outdoor nursery while being mindful of the 6-foot social distancing guideline and common sense.   We have instituted social distancing and regular sanitizing of frequently touched surfaces.

Some of our staff need time at home with children who are home from school for the month. We need to close one day a week to allow remaining staff to rest, so we will be closed on Mondays, except by appointment.
