Kris—Our Fearless Leader
Kris's love for everything green was passed down to him from his grandfather. As a young kid Kris would help in his grandpa's all-organic and eco-friendly garden. Inspired by great childhood memories, gardening became a hobby and a passion for him as an adult as well, until finally he left a successful career in clinical engineering to open Green Thumb Garden Center and encourage others to try their hand at organic gardening. Kris has an enthusiasm for gardening that is infectious and an engineering mind perfect for helping you design, implement, troubleshoot, and succeed in all your gardening projects, no matter how big or small. He's also really easy to talk to. Stop in and you'll find out why both expert and fledgling gardeners enjoy picking his brain and swapping gardening stories with Kris.
Jonathan—Store Manager and Soil Guru
Jonathan is our resident soil expert. He has coordinated projects for organic landscaping firms, managed aquaculture operations in the Puget Sound, and founded and managed a Salmon Safe Certified Organic Farm (which supplied a 10-member CSA, as well as farmers markets and restaurants and also was used as a model cooperator for Washington State University’s Small Farms training program). And that was just in his spare time. When it comes to soil, Jonathan can tell you a thing or two…just ask him. He’s the guy with the dreadlocks and the friendly smile. Let him know what you’d like to achieve with your garden, and he’ll steer you in the right direction.
