The Western Nursery & Landscape Association was founded in 1890 when a group of forward-thinking horticulture industry leaders decided to get together with other excellent nursery firms west of the Mississippi River and create the Western Nurseryman's Association. Hence the name Western Nursery and Landscape Association. While now a Midwestern trade association, in 1890 this area was the West!
The Western Nursery & Landscape Association continues to be the trade association for horticultural companies in the Midwest.
Since 1890, the Western continues its long-standing tradition as a regional, value oriented and interactive platform. Our purpose is to provide a social and educational networking event creating, engaging and building sustainable relationships for all members.
