Emere Nieves

Founder, CEO & Lead Gardener

My name is Emere Nieves, and I love to garden and teach. Gardeness Inc is a culmination of my education and desire to restore landscapes from the soil up. I speak for the trees and garden for the bees. My grandmother and mother were my first teachers and they are eco-stewards. Gardeness is here to service landscapes in a way that's healthful to our planet. Our organic and regenerative approach heals the soils so flora and fauna can flourish.

A working mother of 3, I have been able to turn this gardening company into a full time gig thanks to our incredible clientele. My prior professional gardening experience includes training community gardeners at Grassroots Gardens of WNY. Before that, I managed the Delaware Park's Rose Garden and Japanese Garden; RiverRock Garden and others in the Buffalo Olmsted Park System. I completed CCE's Master Gardener training in 2014 and am certified in Organic Gardening through Cornell. In 2020, the company and its employees became Accredited in Organic Land Care Professional(s) (AOLCP) through CT NOFA. In 2015, I earned my degree in Physical Geography and Environmental Science at SUNY Buffalo State College to further my understanding of our Earth and its complex, interconnected systems.

 

Its an honor to hold space in your creations and nurture our Earth with garden care. I believe soil health is the key to curbing climate change and essential for all ecosystems.
