Jared is a certified soil technician and enjoys using his microscope to examine the plant related benefits of the microbial world in the soil. He earned a bachelor’s degree in ornamental horticulture and a master’s in sustainable agriculture and food environment. As a kid, he came home from the thrift store one day with a 400+ page book on house plants so he could learn all the scientific names of mom’s plants. Ever since, he has been on a never-ending quest to know all the plants. He has worked in landscaping, nurseries and operated an award winning on-farm restaurant.
