Shopping at The Nursery

The Nursery at Jail Industries is temporarily suspending our horticulture program.

We will be hosting a CLOSEOUT SALE!!

SATURDAY OCTOBER 1, 2022, 9am to 1pm

Please note, we will not be scheduling plant sales appointments before or after the Closeout Sale.

It is with great sadness, that we must announce to our friends and supporters that the Nursery at Jail Industries will be temporarily closing. This program was designed as a vocational teaching program for incarcerated persons. We unfortunately do not have student inmates, due to our North County Detention Facility (NCDF) being closed. The Sheriff’s Office hopes to reopen this program in the future.

However, we sincerely thank all our supporters over the 30+ years that this program has existed. You have helped to make this program successful and we are grateful for your patronage.

FINAL SALE: Saturday October 1, 2022 9AM – 2PM
All 1-gallon plants and larger will be $2. All 2” & 4” pots will be $1.
