Following is a list of "Native plants" for the Bahamas that are being grown by Greenlife Growers. We are located in Central Andros. We have a current inventory, with some plants being four years old. We have conducted a Coastal Zone Restoration in Central Andros and supplied plants to Eleuthera for a similar project with the Bahamas National Trust. These plants require no maintenance once they are established, and they are accustomed to the drought conditions that we have every year. They help to restore the natural biodiversity to altered land.
