In an environment where growing emphasis has been placed on development of sustainability in businesses and communities, the nursery industry has a natural leadership role. Growing sustainably focuses on balancing greater efficiency of resource use with environmental stewardship. By using water and nutrients efficiently and by controlling their movement both onsite and offsite, nurseries can become sustainable operations and be part of a larger movement that stresses the importance of "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations."
