Jen Ed


New in 2019! Introducing Johnston’s Evergreen Nursery Educational Training (JEN Ed™) Series. We created JEN Ed™ as a response to hearing a common refrain on our customer service surveys: "We need more training on plants!" You asked, and we listened!

By creating various training opportunities for both our Green Industry professional and gardening enthusiast customers, Johnston's strives to improve the overall quality of landscape management in Erie County and beyond. Through JEN Ed™, we intend to share several generations of knowledge and experience in the best horticultural practices. 

The goal of JEN Ed™ is:

  • Growing Better Plants
  • Cultivating Better Relationships
  • Harvesting Better Results

Upcoming Events

Due to the nature of the nursery business, most of our JEN Ed events are planned to take place during the colder months of the year when we have a little more free time to be away from the fields, plants, and customers who need our attention. Stay tuned as we add more events later this year! In the meantime, if there's a topic that you'd like to see us cover, please send an email with your suggestion and we'll certainly take that into account as we plan new events. Thanks for checking in!
