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.

To accommodate expected growth for the next several years, Mountain Meadows will purchase and install a 1,440 square foot greenhouse and connect it to irrigation. The greenhouse will protect nursery stock during winter and summer weather.
