Jeremiah Harper is the retail manager of Cactus Jungle Nursery and Garden in Berkeley (1509 Fourth Street). Jeremiah was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, growing up with a love for the surrounded natural beauty. While on family camping trips, he would trade in his fishing pole for a magnifying glass and then set out on his own adventures in search of interesting plants and animals.
He began growing plants as a young teenager, initially with a little seed-starting windowsill herb garden. It didn’t take long before he was collecting uncommon cactus and succulents, which proved quite the challenge considering the overcast, cool, and damp environment of the Pacific Northwest.
He will be sharing his expertise on propagating and growing succulents. He will also demonstrate how to arrange and plant succulents in a container/pot. There will be a drawing for the planted container at the end of the program.
