Heath's Background

"Organic From The Beginning"

The first greenhouse at Heath's Greenhouse and Nursery was constructed in 1989, from the inception of Heath's Environmental Enterprise in 1972. Owner and operator Tom Heath became inspired, after the birth of his youngest child in 1989, with the idea of starting a home based, retail organic greenhouse and nursery business.  It was paramount for him to go organic. While carrying his daughter on his back, at such a young age, around the greenhouse, he managed to find a balance. She was fascinated in learning about beneficial insects and helping release lady bugs in the greenhouse. She loved assisting her dad with caring for the greenhouse; such as seeding and transplanting.  He is well experienced in natural pest (insect) control management with 30+ years of self training.   


Melissa Emerson joined Heath's in 1999 and quickly worked her way up from general helper to assistant manager. She brings knowledge, smiles, kindness, creativity and helpfulness.  In 2005, Melissa & Tom joined as one and continue to operate their home based business.
