Welcome to the Nipomo Native Garden

The Nipomo Native Garden is a twelve acre site located between Pomeroy, Camino Caballo and Osage in the community of Nipomo, California. The site is in the final stages of being restored to a native botanical garden which will feature native plant communities endemic to the Nipomo Mesa and dunes complex.

Nipomo Native Garden is a local, community-based federal and state non-profit organization composed of volunteers and members who support this restoration effort.

This web site will provide information about events at the garden, gardening and landscaping with native plants, wildflowers in bloom and photography. The Nipomo Native Garden web site also provides links to California native plant societies, local botanical gardens and native plant wholesale and retail nurseries.

The Nipomo Native Garden, through this web site, encourages feedback, photographs and inquiries about educational and research opportunities for local schools and colleges. We support a dialog about plant communities, their interdependence and associated wildlife. We welcome new members and encourage you to become involved in our efforts to create a place of beauty and tranquility in our community.
