I'm Maurice Levin, rare plant grower and preservationist. In 1998, I started Jurassic Garden, a family-owned rare plant growing grounds and nursery in Los Angeles, California. We propagate and grow rare living-fossil plants called Cycads, and other rare and drought-resistant plants like Agaves, Aloes and Strelitzias. Our mission is "Preservation through Propagation": if we all grow and nurture enough of these plants, they will no longer be threatened in the wild.
