The adventure began with the purchase of our Southwest Denver house in the fall of 2008. The yard was in bad shape and needed a lot of attention. My wife Alena and I decided to nourish the soil with compost and plants. We created our first ever garden the following summer. Nicknamed "The Yarden", we grew carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, corn, tomatillos and peppers.
Since then the "yarden" has shrunk to garden size. But my passion for growing has only increased. I've since taken a job in the industry. We maintain a garden each summer. And in January of 2020, we built a fully functional greenhouse in our backyard. Starting Jason's Nursery is a dream realized. I want to provide growing space, plants and produce to the community and become part of something bigger.
