Tokata Learning Center Graduate Taking Orders to Get Your Garden Started

MAX MARCH 28, 2019 -- Max Edgar began his interest in planting at Tokata Learning Center when he took care of the plants at the front desk. It grew with the installation of the hydroponics system at the TLC. And now, Max, at 19 years-old has started his own greenhouse and garden service.


“I started working at Cal’s Market and Garden Center the summer after my junior year,” said Edgar. “I pretty much just fell in love with the vegetable and herbs because they were fun to water and watch grow and I tried it out for myself.”


After graduating from Tokata Learning Center last year, Edgar’s Greenhouse and Garden Service was born out of Max’s love for gardening. This is the second year he will offer starter plants to the public.


“I am local, organic and non-GMO,” said Edgar. “I strongly believe in that. I hand seed and hand water everything.”


This year you can get vegetables and herbs from Max. He will deliver directly to your home. To place your order, you can either call Max at 952-412-2531 or send an email to
