About Bread and Roses Nursery

Bread & Roses Nursery is Bloomington Indiana's premier permaculture plant nursery and landscaping company. Founders Salem Willard and Jonas Carpenter started the business in 2012. Our mission is to help Bloomington and surrounding communities transition to a more sustainable and regenerative future.

We do so by offering a wide array of edible and useful plants, as well as landscape consultation, design, and installation. The majority of our work is geared towards promoting stronger biodiversity and increasing food production in home ecosystems.

Bread & Roses Gardens is Salem's farmstead. There we grow a diverse mix of vegetables, fruits, berries, and herbal teas. Everything is grown without chemicals off grid in no till raised beds, hillside terraces and small high tunnels. These deep rich soils are teaming with biological life and grow nutrient dense food. Join us at the farm and nursery for sales and tours on Saturdays April 23 through June 11 from 10 am to 3pm.
