Meet New Owners Alison Greene and Jose Gonzales

Longtime employees Alison and Jose are the new owners of City People’s Garden Store. Jose has been working at the Garden Store since 1998 as the Annuals Buyer, and Alison started in 2003 becoming a Manager and the Tree & Shrub Buyer. The two worked closely with former owners Steve Magley and Dianne Casper to move the business forward.

They are thrilled to have this opportunity to keep this Seattle institution alive and attribute much of their success so far to the community support they received this year. They are committed to carrying the store’s core beliefs forward, and noted, “We care very deeply about how we operate: natural and organic, an emphasis on nurturing and growing, open communication and respect, and a true joy of plants …”
