We are available 9-6 Tuesday through Saturday for consultations. Saturday hours may vary depending on garden fair schedules. We service the northern Shenandoah Valley and NOVA areas* and are also available for virtual consults through whichever platform works for you.

To help increase access to the types of services we offer, if you are a small non-profit in the fields of environmental conservation or education, we can offer our consultation services for a reduced rate. Please contact Dr. Lacher at with inquiries.

*Due to increased gas prices, for sites outside of a 30min radius from Winchester, we may need to charge the standard government mileage rate of 65.5 cents/mile. This enables us to provide services and native plants to more ecosystems within our area.
