Jason Jorgensen

Born in Berkeley, California, Jason moved to Washington state at the age of seven, and has called the Pacific Northwest home ever since. After more than twenty years in the international shipping industry, he decided it was time for a career change. After graduating in 2013 with degrees in Landscape Design and Ornamental Horticulture from Edmonds Community College, he turned his life-long passion for gardening and plant selection into his profession as a landscape designer. Currently, Jason is collaborating with clients on creating sustainable summer-dry gardens around Seattle, WA.
