Useful Plants Nursery is a permaculture-based nursery specializing in useful, phytonutritional, food, and medicine plants well-adapted to our Southern Appalachian mountains and surrounding bioregions. Our plants are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides at our nursery located at Earthaven Ecovillage. Nursery founder and co-owner, Chuck Marsh, provides edible landscape and Permaculture design consulting and workshops.

We sell plants at the nursery at Earthaven. During the spring and fall our plants are available at Villagers in West Asheville and at Niche Gardens in Chapel Hill. We can deliver to areas within 4 hours of the nursery.
