ONLA Membership

Renew Your Membership
Formed in 1926, the Oklahoma State Nurserymen's Association (OSNA) had humble but visionary beginnings.  Fast-forward ninety-one years to 2017.  The organization is now called the Oklahoma Nursery and Landscape Association, a combination of the OSNA and the OGGA - Oklahoma Greenhouse Growers Association.  We promote and support  businesses who grow, sell, design, install and maintain plant material and those in supporting areas of the green industry in and around Oklahoma.

Joining ONLA means joining an encouraging and collaborating group of individuals and businesses within the green industry of Oklahoma.  Active, Associate, Allied and Affiliate members unite in fellowship, education, support and strength.   We invite you to learn about the association and become a member.
