General Manager,

Urban Farm Nursery

Janis is the glue that holds the Nursery together, and loves setting up the systems that help our Fruit Tree Program run successfully. However, as a scientist with a love of engineering, she was truly interested in the how's and why's of healthy soil, the ecology in the soil, and the mechanics of how successful plants get established in the soil. Between her studies, her work with Urban Farm, and taking Master Gardener courses - she was hooked. Now she wants to help others understand the beauty of how planting trees can work for them.
