We Shall Grow

As the first plant store in the US to sell all plants in biodegradable nursery pots, Pollyn aims to bring more environmental awareness to the plant industry with the goal of eliminating single use plastics from the retail experience.

With the support of various community members and volunteers the vacant building lot has been converted into an urban oasis, powered by solar energy.

Pollyn carries houseplants, including rare tropicals, as well as outdoor annuals and perennials. Ceramics have been exclusively sourced from small batched artisans from all over the world.

In addition, Pollyn offers events, workshops and talks centered around topics like horticulture & plant care, composting & food waste, or mushroom & hemp growing.


Pollyn is committed to foster an inclusive culture. Whether related to accessibility, gender, ethnicity, age or sexual orientation, it’s important to find ways to grow in our understanding and support of others. The tagline, We Shall Grow, synthesizes these values as it refers to growing an inclusive and diverse community based on the values of equality and respect towards other people and the environment.
