Happy Earth Day (and Gawd we love Science)

Happy Earth Day and a day for appreciation of science. My other degree (besides horticulture / ag.) is in cellular-molecular biology and I am happy to consider myself a scientist. The scientific method gives me a framework to observe, question, understand and organize all there is to learn in my mountain gardens, in this world and in this life. I am ever grateful for the amazing science, English and philosophy teachers I was privileged to study with. I am so fortunate to be in a position to keep experimenting and gathering data of my own and through all of you who share your methods and results with us on a daily basis. You teach us.  
 Growing up in the age of the Clean Air Act and the eventual Clean Water Act, I was ever hopeful that humans would or could "do the right thing". We have aimed, through the nursery, to "leave the world a better place". We promote, grow and offer native plants, bulbs and seeds that require a minimum of care. We use and encourage use of natural and organic fertilizers and composts to improve the soil biology, help clean the water and produce healthy, strong plants that will survive long after we've gone.  We think we have an amazing, intelligent, and curious clientele who largely share our intentions and we sincerely appreciate you all.  

 P.S. With that in mind, we do have a couple of positions available in the nursery this summer. As always we appreciate people who love helping others, who have a passion for plants (though not necessarily a deep knowledge of them as you can't help but learn while you are with us).
