BIZNOTE: New owners to reopen Village Green Nursery

Village Green Nursery at 10223 26th SW, closed last year by longtime owner Vera Johnson, is reopening under new ownership. Noah Trutzschler and Sarah Young (photo at right) contacted us to say they’ve taken over and are getting ready for a grand opening next month. Right now, they say they’re “in the process of setting up the nursery to its former beauty, and plan on continuing the tradition of providing the community with healthy and beautiful plants.” They also plan to feature garden art and are looking for artists. You can see their full announcement on our partner site White Center Now.

    YAHOO!!!! I drive past VG every day and was hoping it was still going to be a nursery and not turn into a multiple home lot, the lot is big enough and the surrounding properties well that is what they turned into.

    Do you know if the new owners at the VG are going to have chickens like Vera did…nothing like fresh organic eggs!? 

     And I too wonder if Vera and her children are doing well, I’m hoping they are.

    Good luck to you Noah and Sarah!

    So happy to hear!  Like so many others, I worried about what that beautiful spot would turn into what with all the crazy development going on these days.  Will be glad to shop there for sure :)

    Terrific – can’t wait to visit and support them!

    Super news! Glad they’re on their way with serving the community again. That’s what I’d hoped for. 

    Best wishes and please, support them on their journey. 

    We’ve relocated to western Maine. We’re doing well and have tremendous gratitude for all the support we had being stewards of the land there. 

    We’re surrounded by farms, artistsans and dedicated self-sufficiency. I’m at home here. 

    WArm regards

    Vera and family
