We envision a resilient world dependent on the thoughtful cultivation of plants

Our Work

As the leading voice of horticulture in our Pacific region for today and future generations, we spread ideas that grow our gardens and landscapes to achieve climate resilience, steward biodiversity, and connect people with nature. 

We achieve this by sharing optimistic stories on new media platforms. As an education focused non-profit, we are committed to speaking in conversational, optimistic language that includes everyone. 

Our Members

Our members are essential to our impact. Pacific Horticulture represents a diversity of people who are making the Pacific region more livable, healthful, habitat supporting, and resilient through garden and landscape stewardship. 

Our network of allies includes gardeners, designers, scientists, horticulturists, nursery growers, educators, students, and everyone interested in climate solutions through gardening. 

If you live in the Pacific region, you know that seasons in your garden look different from the rest of North America. Our resources serve (but are not limited to) California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Hawaii, Alaska, and Baja California.
