Describe your business.

Green Acres Nursery & Supply is a locally and independently owned nursery. We offer better plants, better service, better prices and better selection than the box stores. If you come into any of our locations (Folsom, Roseville, Sacramento) you will see the Green Acres difference. We are also proud to have grown our business and offer jobs within our community during this difficult economic time.

How are you involved with both the community and your customer?

In the community, we love to give back. Earlier this year, we gave both our time and products to the Sacramento Zoo to help revitalize their native garden. We also give plant and product donations to local charities. We have seen hundreds of school gardens pop up around the community, and it’s neat to help offset costs for the teachers so that our students can have an educational garden experience (despite budget cuts). Giving back to our customers comes through the free seminars and events we offer. We have an awesome free event called Fall Festival every October, which has kids’ games, food, a pumpkin patch, music and more. Our customers look forward to it all year long!

Why is your staff the best in the business?

We know plants!  We enjoy sharing our knowledge with our customers so they can be successful.

What’s your biggest job perk?

Being able to walk into any of our stores and be blown away by nature’s beauty. We get to see the seasons change right before our eyes, and with each season there is a unique level of excitement. Every day we get to take a step back and breathe in the beauty. Let’s face it – it looks lovely, smells lovely, the birds are chirping…nothing beats it!

What’s your favorite local business other than your own?

We like Fat’s Asia Bistro. Delicious!

And finally, customer service is…?

King! It involves answering questions, educating, listening, and providing the best quality product at the best prices. That is customer service, and that is Green Acres Nursery & Supply!
