Ask Forest. He knows.
PERSONALIZED, EXPERT ADVICE JUST FOR YOU.
Redbarn’s resident expert and general manager Forest Bingham has over 20 years of experience in horticulture, farming, and hydroponic growing. Forest grew up on his parents’ chicken and corn farm and developed a passion and love for gardening at the young age of 4. He transformed that passion into a long-standing career in agriculture and organic farming. He began growing produce for local farmers’ markets and started his own landscape construction company. He would go on to launch a successful career in the hydroponics business.
In 2003, Forest began working for Hydro-Organics (owner of Earth Juice and Greenfire) manufacturing organic fertilizers and helping formulate and develop new lines and products. Through his hard work and dedication, he rose to the position of General Manager of Greenfire Chico. Identified as a leader in the industry, he then became a national representative for Hydro-Organics and Earth Juice. He traveled throughout the U.S. educating new and existing customers about the products and served as the number one product support specialist for Earth Juice.
In 2008, under his astute leadership and with his expert knowledge, Greenfire was named one of the top stores in Northern California. The owners would go on to sell their profitable operations and Forest decided to take his expertise to the field and work as a private consultant for the top medical growers in the area.
In 2014 Forest had the opportunity to return to his roots and work with 3.D. Organics to develop and manufacture fertilizer. He spearheaded the launch of AG101, a line of cannabis specific fertilizer and soil. They revolutionize the industry by offering fertilizer direct from the manufacturer to the end user. Redbarn Garden Supply sought out an industry expert with Forest’s experience and knowledge to oversee our operations and we are thrilled to have him on our team.
