Cultivating Place: Humble Roots Nursery
Kristin Currin is owner and founder with her husband Drew Merritt of Humble Roots Native Plant Nursery in Mosier, Oregon.
Situated at the interface between temperate rain forest, the Great Basin and the Columbia River Gorge, Humble Roots has a mission to inspire gardeners, nature lovers and conservationists to deepen their relationship with native plants.
“Native Plants are 1 million times more interesting than any petunia — they are breathtaking,” Kristin tells us with passion.
This award-winning nursery state this on their website about envisioning the future together: “Now more than ever we all need to do our part to conserve, protect and nurture native plants. Native plants are one of the most important links in any natural system and we all benefit from their function as well as their beauty. Native plants provide habitat, ground stabilization, beauty and even food and medicine. The Humble Roots crew will do everything we can to help you cultivate a passion for and have a direct relationship with native plants.”
For me, it is Kristin and Drew’s emphasis on developing a relationship with my native plants through observation, time and effort that I take home from this conversation. It is an emphasis we can all work to further. Join us for more knowledge and passion on Cultivating Place.
