Description: Join us for this special backstage pass into the dynamic world of native plant nursery production from an expert changing the landscaping culture here in Michigan.  Join Bill Schneider, founder and owner of Wild Type Native Plant Nursery, as he shares his unique perspective and observations collected from over two decades of growing the right plants, the right way.

“Several years ago I was discussing this with a friend and he asked me a simple question, ‘what will a native plant nursery look like in 50 years?’ I have been pondering the gravity of this question ever since. The question not only challenges the meaning of what is native but more importantly, the significance of being native.” —From Restoration in a changing landscape—what’s a native plant nursery to do?”by Bill Schneider
