Plants actually do move somewhat it's just too slow for humans to see. Trees grow up towards the light and most plants will grow in the direction of sunlight (phototropism). To defend them selves from being eaten plants have developed defenses such as thorns or have chemicals that are poisonous. Some plants use herbivory as a method of spreading their seeds.

All their food comes to them. Sun and water from the sky - nutrients from the soil. No need to move!
