Sparrowhawk Native Plants provides eco-minded gardeners in the Portland-Vancouver Metro area with habitat-friendly and climate-resilient plants that support healthy ecosystems. We're a new kind of nursery - offering online sales with several convenient pick-up options each fall and spring. Our goal is to bring a diverse selection of native plants to neighborhoods that don't otherwise have access to them, at unbeatable prices. Plus, a portion of all proceeds goes back to the community organizations that host our pick-up events.
At Sparrowhawk we believe that gardening can be revolutionary. We believe our yards are the landscape of an uncharted future - a future that is rooted in community and support for all living things. We believe that anything is possible as long as we preserve the ecosystems that sustain us.
Sparrowhawk is proudly owned and managed by Nikkie West and Tracy Cozine.
Nikkie and Tracy met around 2015 and immediately hit it off based on our shared love of native plants and gardening for a better planet. Over the years, we learned that we also share an interest in growing community and organizing seamless systems. Lo and behold, our business goals eventually intersected and in 2019 Sparrowhawk was born!
At Sparrowhawk, we partner with growers that share our passion for local ecology and our integrity for how the planet, and its plants, should be cared for. This means we prioritize buying from wholesalers that do not use harmful neonicotinoids and that are conscientious about maintaining diversity of regional genomes by focusing on growing from seed that originated in the Willamette Valley.
Our Community Partnership Program
We partner with environmental or conservation groups who help publicize our sales season and staff our pop-up plant pick-ups. In return, partners receive up to $5,000 for their cause! Interested in learning more? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org today!

You can help bring Sparrowhawk to your community! We're actively looking for community partners/locations to host future plant pick-ups. Do you have ideas for a large, available parking lot, community event space, or open warehouse? If so, contact us!
