Matt has always taken the time to stop and smell the roses. His thirst to understand our delicate ecosystem landed him his first job at a greenhouse at age 16. Although, his first task was pulling weeds from under the benches the opportunities seemed endless. Matt eventually became head propagator and managed 6 large greenhouses for 5 years. In addition to traditional greenhouse culture, Matt started a “rooftop garden” business and teaches classes about modern cultivation techniques. Currently, Matt operates the research greenhouse for Arborjet as their Horticultural Specialist. He designs studies, formulates products and travels all over the USA sharing the latest developments in Plant Healthcare. Not only does Matt seek out new products, techniques and information, he gets to educate the community, which he is equally passionate about. The Dirt on Dirt is the perfect place to bridge the gap between research and sharing with others.
