The Wilderness Greenhouse
The Diakon Wilderness Greenhouse is a native plant and teaching nursery.
Here young people served by Diakon learn skills, gain workplace experience, build relationships and deepen their understanding of the world around them.
Students, staff, volunteers and partners grow and sell more than 200 species of flowering plants, ferns, grasses, shrubs and trees native to Central Pennsylvania for wildlife and restoration. Proceeds benefit Diakon Youth Services and our work with children, youths and families.
