About Us



Tipi Mountain Native Plant Nursery is the premier native plant nursery in the Southern Interior/Kootenay Region of British Columbia. Our ownership team is comprised of Michael Keefer M.Sc., P.Ag. and Robert Williams. Robert is a young Ktunaxa elder who specialists in archaeology and GIS, and whose vision led to the creation of Tipi Mountain Native Plants. Michael is recognized subject expert in plant science with specialization in plant ecology, mycology, ecological restoration and ethnobotany. Tipi Mountain Native Plants is a majority aboriginal owned business and employs several First Nation and non-First Nation staff.

In addition to native plant propagation, we also offer revegetation planning and implementation services, as well as custom seed harvesting, cleaning, and propagation. When we collect seed for your project, we ensure that seed was collected from the correct ecosystem to further enhance the success of your project.

Our business is focused on providing native plant material that is local to your project, and is suited for ecological restoration, reclamation, site remediation, and landscaping uses.
