About Us

Based in Northern California, EcoForms is a family-founded business that grew out of the desire to find an alternative to plastic pots. The seed of our efforts was the founding of Sweetwater Nursery in 1977. For almost 30 years, we have brought organic plants to West Coast gardeners — exploring the secrets of each variety in our trial gardens, and then sharing the best with our customers. Continuing the use of plastic pots in our nursery concerned us. Our search for an alternative led us to the resilient, yet compost-able, pots made from renewable grain fibers—today’s EcoForms™ pots. The use of these containers in our own growing operations has given us another way to reduce our reliance on petroleum products. The commitment to sustainability doesn’t end with our products. Our facility is solar powered and our local delivery trucks run on 100% bio-diesel. With over 30 years of experience as wholesale organic growers, our family proudly stands behind our eco-friendly products.
