Alameda Greenhouse History
We have been around in some form or another since 1986. Can you believe it? We were ten years old when the Co-Op first opened! We have seen a lot of history, and a lot of changes of our own. nursery.
Before we were Alameda Greenhouse, we started out as a hydroponic tomato farm run by a gentleman named Al. He got the inspiration to build his greenhouse here after working at a flower shop and deciding to strike out on his own. Wanting to expand his business into bedding plants, he hired Steve in 1986. The greenhouse took off, and over the years we grew from one greenhouse to nine! We would eventually have hundreds of pepper and tomato varieties, and plant thousands of perennials every year. He would also develop a skilled, bombastic team of loyal staff. Some have worked here for more than 20 years!
With Steve's passing in 2014, his assistant Kimberly did her best to uphold his legacy until her own passing in 2018. We now have a brand new owner; A previous cashier and gardener, who is ready to breath fresh life into the greenhouse. We hope her presence will bolster the greenhouse's place in the hearts of the North Valley, and in the history of New Mexico. When you stop by; We hope you'll see what we came from, as well as what we've become!
Cuidate, Nuevo Mexico! And stop by soon!
