How it All Began...
David Loewen of Stratton, Ontario, Canada Loved Growing Things
Third child in a family of nine children, David knew much comradery and laughter growing up a healthy country kid. Often helping on his grandfather's farm, he was plopped on a tractor at age seven to rake a field of hay by an older uncle, and he never lost his joy of agriculture.
As a young man he earned his Horticultural Technician degree and became a certified Interprovincial Red Seal Landscaper. David's story is mostly a lot of late nights and hard work, but he wouldn't change a thing.

Pushing Through Long Winters
Cold Outside, Warm Inside!
In the long winters an outdoor wood furnace heated water which then heated the greenhouses. Keeping the fires burning was a never-ending job, his brother Jonathan, father John and he managed to keep enough wood cut and ready to stoke the fire. David has slept in the greenhouses to keep them from freezing.
David Wed his Beloved Sara 2007
A married man, David and his new bride continued to pursue their dreams for the greenhouse business together. They opened a large retail Garden Center, three gutter-connected bays in 2009.
David's folks and family still were very helpful working alongside in the business, and new staff were added as well to aid in the thriving garden center and landscaping business.
After a few years the young couple were blessed with three beautiful sons. Now David and Sara work together in Ellensburg, still dreaming, growing and pursuing. For their family, community and the future of gardening everywhere.
