When we hear the term sustainable, we automatically think environmental. But, I think, there's more to it than that.
I don't think any industry is at the mercy of Mother Nature more than agriculture, and we've suffered our share or blows.
Alf was a long time friend of the family and nursery handyman. It is with a heavy heart we say goodbye to him on March 31, 2008.
We've been home-growing plants locally for decades. It's only fair we help give back to our community in some way. One way we do this is through fund-raising programs for community organizations, non-proft groups, or other worthy causes.
As a Greenhouse and Field Grower, we don't really talk about green initiatives. So what have we done to be more green?
Gardening uses lots of plastic. It's an unfortunate truth. There's plastic for the greenhouses, plastic for pots, plastic for trays, plastic everywhere. How can we be greener with all this plastic?
At Richmond Nursery we're pet friendly! But there are some rules to bringing in your pets, so please review them before you bring your pets over.
It is with great sadness that I must announce that George Rofner, owner of Richmond Nursery, son of Ludwig Rofner and Anna Spiegel, passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 73 during the early hours of the night on October 23rd, 2010. He leaves behind his beloved wife Claudia Rofner, daughter Debbie Rofner (Curt Millar), son Peter Rofner (Sue Secord), and cherished grandson Jakob.
