HUNGRY HOOK FARM
NATIVE PLANTS OF THE EASTERN WOODLANDS AT HUNGRY HOOK FARM - a new native plant nursery start-up led by Sherrie Moyer, former nursery woman here at Meadowood, botanist, horticulturist, professional landscaper and naturalist who is passionate about providing locally grown native plants for the regional landscape.
Currently seeded and under propagation, HUNGRY HOOK FARM native plants will be available spring, 2015, at their local farmer's market at Flanagan Park in Marietta, PA.

THE WILDERNESS GREENHOUSE
Native plants from Meadowood Nursery’s inventory have migrated to a new home at
The Wilderness Greenhouse, a program of Diakon Youth Services, in Boiling Springs,
Cumberland County, PA. The Wilderness Greenhouse is located on the campus of the
Diakon Wilderness Center, a nonprofit organization that has been serving at risk youth
throughout central Pennsylvania for almost 30 years. The Wilderness Greenhouse has
provided the center with a horticultural program for many years, but will be shifting its
production in the spring to the propagation and production of Pennsylvania native plants.
Kim Patten, the new Wilderness Greenhouse manager, is spearheading the production shift.
She brings experience in conservation and education to the development of a sustainable
horticulture program that will provide students with an opportunity to build skills while gaining
a deeper understanding of resource conservation, natural history and stewardship.
The Wilderness Greenhouse is looking forward to becoming a source of natives for
conservation applications in central Pennsylvania and will open their
retail nursery onsite in spring 2015. They anticipate continuing to serve the regional
conservation community by providing native plants for habitat restoration and local native
plant sale efforts.
