The Wilderness Greenhouse & Native Plant Nursery

We are now officially closed for the 2017 season. The Diakon Wilderness Greenhouse & Native Plant Nursery will have no more regular public hours until spring 2018. However, we remain open for private appointments through the end of October if you need native perennials for your fall plantings.To schedule an appointment, please email Kim Patten or call her at (717) 960-6740.

Thank you for your support throughout the entire 2017 season!


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.
