Lowlands Nursery

Grown in Gowanus

The Lowlands Nursery offers plants that are well-adapted to the urban conditions of Gowanus, celebrating the local ecosystem while educating and engaging the community in environmental stewardship.

Our plant inventory centers on native urban-adapted plants, which we sell to individuals, civic institutions, and landscape designers. Our  mission-driven nursery supports stewardship of the Gowanus lowlands by providing plant material for installations and engaging students and volunteers in direct plant care.

Come to one of our seasonal plant sales around the neighborhood, or make an appointment to visit the nursery, located at the Salt Lot, by emailing plants@gowanuscanalconservancy.org
