Wildtype: Get yer native plants, folks!
April 17, 2006
A few years ago a friend of ours, Bill Schneider, got a new neighbor. He started a native plants nursery and landscape design service called WildType. His name? Bill Schneider! Since he and his family moved into their old farm house and acreage we've made friends with them and enjoyed hanging out. "Wild Bill" goes around finding likely land then asks the owners if he can harvest some seeds from the native species he finds. He and up to a dozen helpers then cultivate them. He now offers a catalog of must be over a hundred native plants, trees and grasses. He also works with people to design their yards and gardens and company spaces, using natives. He's been doing his own thing, helping our state be a more native place, for over 10 years now. Go Bill and family and friends!
