Jared is a key person on the growing team. In many ways Jared felt like he grew up here since he often shopped for flowers with his parents. It seemed only natural to work here when the opportunity arose. He says, “Ebert’s is a place where I can work outdoors and help grow plants with people and for people who appreciate them.” He likes learning more every day about plants and soaking up information from his knowledgeable co-workers.
Jared doesn’t have any formal education when it comes to growing plants, however, he worked on organic produce farms for several years before coming to Ebert's. He has a degree in Anthropology which left him with a desire to work with people and learn how they connect with plants.
In his free time, Jared loves spending time with his wife and daughter gardening and being outdoors as much as possible. He also enjoys hunting, fishing, hiking, foraging for wild edible plants, canoeing, and swimming.
