We envision a society that values our natural resources - where the beauty of a plant comes not just from its looks, but also from its function; where our landscapes are primarily native plants that host native insects that feed a long chain of native animals; and where we use fewer resources, reduce flash flooding, and restore balance to our ecosystem.
Sow Wild Natives provides high-quality, regional, native plants to add function and beauty to yards and greenspaces throughout the Kansas City region to support our vision of restoring balance to our ecosystem.
We are Tracy and Aaron Twombly (and all the many people that support us). We care about sustainably maintaining and enjoying God's creation. We have a passion for conserving our natural resources, enjoying the beauty of nature, and educating others on how to leave a better world for future generations.

In 2013, we fulfilled a life dream of Aaron's when we purchased 92 acres along the Little Blackwater Creek in Johnson County Missouri as a conservation project. We call this place Harmony Farms. Since we've purchased the property, we have reforested 25 acres and planted another 25 acres into prairie species. Harmony is a beautiful, diverse piece of land with habitats ranging from glade to wetland. Our kind friends at Missouri Department of Conservation have featured our Harmony story in the Missouri Conservationist Magazine.
Through our experiences at Harmony Farms, Tracy found her love of native plants. She began learning about the various plant species native to Missouri. She also began collecting seeds and growing her own plants and discovered just how much she loves growing our native species.
And that's how Tracy got a Wild idea to grow and sell native wildflowers from locally collected seeds. There is so much beauty and life in our prairies and forests that she wanted to bring it home and then share it with everyone. We hope our plants bring joy, beauty, and life to your home too.
