Steppe One Farm and Nursery


In the Nursery, I grow primarily edible, medicinal and native perennials, including culinary and medicinal herbs, pollinator plants, berries, and fruit trees. My focus is on useful plants that do well in the high desert climate of Reno, Nevada. Most of the plants available in the nursery are also grown on-site in the ground to test and prove their hardiness here. You can view the list of perennials I grow in my Propagation Spreadsheet on the Perennials tab and Fruit and Nuts tab.

If you are interested in locally grown plants, Please fill out my 2024 Nursery Survey where you can suggest plants you'd like me to grow.

The plants I grow are available to local Consulting and Design clients and  at Reno Food Systems Park Farm Stand. Please follow Reno Food Systems on social media and/or subscribe to my newsletter for updates on when plants will be available there.

You can find Planting guides and tutorials on my Resources Page

Steppe One Farm and Nursery operations are integrated into my family's 1.3 acre Permaculture homestead.  All our practices work to cultivate a thriving living soil and biodiverse ecosystem on the site.  The compost, fertilizers and soil mix components we use are OMRI certified.  We do not use chemical pesticides or fertilizers. 

We specialize in culinary and medicinal herbs, both fresh and dried, and also have seasonally available produce and cut flowers. We grow and harvest most of the herbs on the Park Farm Culinary and Medicinal Herbs List. You can also learn more about them and their uses on the Park Farm Culinary and Medicinal Herbs Descriptions and Uses chart.

Here are two printable Culinary Herb and Food Pairing charts. I keep them on the fridge for easy reference.
