The Wilderness Greenhouse & Native Plant Nursery

Our 2019 season is here! Mark your calendars ...

Plugs begin arriving in early March and our students and volunteers potted them to grow for our spring and summer sales. In addition, we now offer our online inventory in a new format (the link opens a new browser window).

The greenhouse is now open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon through the end of June or by appointment.

Please note, however, that the nursery will be closed Saturday, May 18. We apologize for any inconvenience. We will reopen Saturday, May 25, and as noted above are always open to schedule an appointment with you.

And don't forget ... Pollinator Palooza!
June 1, 2019
9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A special sale for all those hoping to support pollinators in their gardens

Visit us to learn more and to purchase plants. And don’t forget to like us on Facebook; we share regular updates about our program and the plants we sell, as well as opportunities to become involved with our important work.

If you have any questions, please email Kim Patten or call her at (717) 960-6740.


The Diakon Wilderness Greenhouse & Native Plant Nursery is a unique greenhouse that not only provides regional residents with perrennials native to Pennsylvania, but also serves as a vocational training site for at-risk youths—and helps to fund Diakon Youth Services programs.

The greenhouse typically offers more than 150 species of flowering plants, ferns, grasses, shrubs and trees. The greenhouse is a teaching nursery, offering students the opportunity to learn valuable skills, gain workplace experience, and deepen their understanding of the relationships in the world around them.
