Leon and Linda Hussey, former owners of Classic Nursery and Landscape Co., are back in business at 12526 Avondale Rd. NE. in Redmond.
Since 2002, after selling Classic, the Husseys started another business called “Keep It Simple, Inc. which sells compost tea makers (invented originally by Leon Hussey) and the organic ingredients to put into the machines to make compost tea.
Compost tea is used to replace the biology in the soil and is like vitamins to plants.
It can often make a plant stronger to ward off diseases.
The Husseys have owned the 7+-acre site since 2002.
They sold their business and continued to lease the land to Classic Nursery & Landscape Co.
This year they regained the property and are not only moving their current business, but also starting an urban farm store, where they will be selling organic, hydroponic products.
The farm will have chickens, chicken coops, bee hives, rabbits, ducks, dog, cats, healthy feed for animals, as well as bird seed and feeders.
As they grow, the Husseys will have fresh eggs, produce and many other organic products. The site will be dedicated to sustainability, permaculture and education.
