welcome to plants in power

a “Powerful” voice promoting the love of gardening, civic and environmental responsibility – advocating sustainability and conservation…

We wanted to create a society that encouraged amateur gardeners, horticulture professionals, and anyone with an interest in the Plant Kingdom to join in. We are a ‘virtual club’ with opportunity to join through social media, blog, sharing photos of projects and gardens, and watch instructional videos. We are based in Newhalem, WA – at the North Cascade National Park, but our members and followers are from all over the United States – and as we grow we would hope to see followers from the international community.

and respect for all in nature……


nature has no borders

Recognizing this connectivity and the historic opportunities to partner and coordinate our efforts in conservation and preservation across borders, is being played out between the scientific and environmental communities throughout the world. It is a complex question – these political borders that separate us as people – but perhaps we can start tearing down the fear they create by first working to preserve nature and the environment together.

rewilding: benefits of awe

Has your lifestyle changed in this past year? For many it has. Indoors and tethered to technology, has been a lifeline in the Pandemic, and for some of us, a discovery into new and exciting ways of connecting and communicating.

master the garden

Plant buds are undeveloped or embryonic shoots that arise on the tip of a stem or in the axil of a leaf. Composed of meristem tissue and containing undifferentiated cells, from which different plant structures develop and grow, and fueled by the rapid cell division when conditions are right they are formed in late summer/early fall and remain small and delicate and in most temperate-zone trees and shrubs.
