Kathleen and Michael Balogh, Mountain Meadows Nursery

Nursery Expansion
Grant Award: $8,000

COVID positively impacted the nursery trade with people turning to their yards and gardens for exercise and enjoyment. Mountain Meadows’ sales have increased since June 2020 with many customers wanting larger plants to enjoy right away rather than waiting for them to grow.

After 40 years in business, Mountain Meadows Nursery is still growing. They have purchased and erected a 20’ x 72’ greenhouse and covered it with shade cloth to protect the plants from drying out. This winter they will cover the greenhouse with plastic. The additional greenhouse provides rotation space that will be ready to move into larger pots this year and beyond.
