Welcome to George’s Corner, where Cloud Mountain’s very own George Kaas will share insider tips from the nursery to get you ready for gardening. George is our nursery retail assistant, and has a long career of working with people and plants.
George worked in construction and taught at Bellingham Technical College and finished a Masters in Ag Production focused on soils and plant pathology from Cal-Poly, San Luis Obispo. He also wrote a gardening column in the Bellingham Herald for a couple of decades and retired from teaching Agriculture and Science at Blaine High School – and he chooses to work with us in his retirement!
We’re honored to have his expertise and passion on our team. And now, in George’s own words…
It’s Workshop season at Cloud Mountain Farm Center! Check the catalog and website for all the classes with more being added! This Saturday February 18th features Growing Apples and Pears. If you miss it there is another chance for this class on the 18th of March. These classes are a great opportunity to learn how to be successful with raising fruit at your site or hone your skills as an experienced grower.”
