New Starter Plant Sales Specialist

Starter Plants news at NATS:

Welcome Vanessa Isnardy, and talk to you soon Haley Argen, Native Plant Consultant

Haley Argen will be leaving behind her current role as full-time Starter Plant Sales Specialist at NATS Nursery starting in 2018.

Haley is making a lifestyle change and moving to Vancouver Island to be closer to family, especially her grandchildren. Along with her husband Thom they will be moving and expanding their own small Nature Tech Nursery, where they will continue to propagate, grow and supply improved hazelnut varieties and other edible perennials to support regional food security and agriculture in BC.

Haley is still passionate and knowledgeable about native plants, their attributes, use, and ability to repair scarred and disturbed landscapes, and will remain involved with NATS Nursery through the magic of technology on special projects.

We wish Haley and her family all the best and look forward to her continuing to be involved with NATS, albeit from the splendor of Vancouver Island.

Haley will be in the offices at NATS through 2017.
