Keynote Speaker Session – Mike Berkley with GroWild.
GroWild, Inc. is a Tennessee plant nursery specializing in native North American plants. GroWild has over 950 species and cultivars of native perennials, wildflowers, trees, shrubs, vines, and grasses. We are growers and will sell to the public by appointment. To visit the nursery, please call and schedule a time.
We pay special attention to the provenance of our plants. The great majority of our inventory is propagated on-site and most originates from the mid-South. In fact, much of our stock comes from Middle Tennessee and a surprising amount is a local genotype native to GroWild’s own 127 acres of beautiful hills and hollows.
