Danielle Ferguson

Current Position:  Owner, Ferguson’s Fragrant Nursery

Danielle Ferguson didn’t start out in the nursery business. She graduated from college with a degree in psychology and went to work in Hood River as a skills trainer for people with disabilities. While working with clients in a wholesale nursery, Danielle discovered what she really loved: growing plants. 

 She needed a horticulture program to pursue her passion. 

Danielle looked for a program and the closest one she could find was at Clackamas Community College. For 10 years, she commuted from her home in Parkdale to Oregon City. 

Danielle finally reached a point in her education that she had to make a decision: to quit her job and focus full time on horticulture. 

Danielle got a job as a gardener with the city of Portland when she was selected over 400 other applicants. After nine years with the city, Danielle realized she really wanted to own a nursery. She and her husband purchased nine acres in St. Paul and began work on Ferguson’s Fragrant Nursery. The nursery is a destination for gardeners from throughout the Northwest. 

Clackamas remains an important part of Danielle’s career through student interns and employees. “Clackamas gave me everything I needed to pursue my dream,” she said.
