The New Jersey Nursery and Landscape Association was first organized in 1915 by a group of nurserymen who thought they could make a difference by banding together. Today, the NJNLA exists for the same purpose. Put simply, we can do more together than we can alone.
The NJNLA is New Jersey's leading green industry association representing the interests of nursery growers, landscape professionals, and retail garden centers. Representatives from our association participate in committees and working groups with the NJDA, USDA, Rutgers and others to help promote and improve the working conditions for our members. Our stated mission in is to bring people together to facilitate networking among industry professionals, promote member products and services to the public, and to provide technical and business education and resources to our members.
The NJNLA is a dynamic group filled with leaders in all aspects of the green industry. We advance professionalism though the Certified Nursery and Landscape Association, we educate public servants in Trenton and Washington on the issues most relevant to our industry, and we run several events focused around providing the best education for our members.
