    • Nature and the Arts

       

       

      The people of North America, from Native Americans to French fur trappers to contemporary residents of all races, colors and creeds, have felt a deep connection to the land, the wilderness, the wildlife of our continent. The landscape and its denizens have been variously seen as the frightening unknown, a source of wealth and limitless resources, a santuary, a place of imense beauty. These perspectives are reflected in the music, literature, performing and visual arts of North America. Here we hope you may find a starting point to explore the arts and their relationship to the natural world. Enjoy. Create.

    The Elms Native Plant Nursery began in response to the difficulty in finding plant material for the small planting projects we started almost 10 years ago. As the nursery approaches its 4th growing season, we stock close to 4000 plants of 30 or more species and support over 40 projects annually. Call, leave feedback or email for more information.
