About Us

Tipi Mountain Native Plant Nursery is the premier native plant nursery in the Southern Interior/Kootenay Region of British Columbia. We are a 100% aboriginal owned business and employ several First Nation and non-First Nation staff.

In addition to native plant propagation, we also offer re-vegetation planning and implementation services, as well as custom seed harvesting, cleaning, and propagation. When we collect seed for your project, we ensure that seed was collected from the correct ecosystem to further enhance the success of your project.

Our business is focused on providing native plant material that is local to your project and is suited for ecological restoration, reclamation, site remediation, and landscaping uses.
