Retail Nursery Partnership
PlantRight invites California garden centers to be leaders in preventing the spread of ornamental invasive plants, and become experts at promoting noninvasive, regionally appropriate alternatives. Participating stores get year-round access to practical, easy-to-access training for retail staff, promotional resources for stores, and leading edge knowledge on this topic, all for FREE.
“PlantRight’s efforts helped solidify and train our team with a singular, cohesive message that can easily be communicated to our customers through signage, handouts, on-line online presence and team member knowledge."
—Dave Stoner, President & CEO, Sloat Garden Center, Inc.
