Jeremiah Young – President/Owner/Designer

A Graduate of Indiana University, Bachelor of Science Degree, Jeremiah founded Nature’s Way in 1976. He has 40 years of experience in the landscaping field. Jeremiah started working in his grandfather’s landscaping company at the age of nine. He received the first Bloomington Small Business of the Year award in 1984 from the Bloomington Chamber of Commerce.

Strictly on a voluntary basis, he is conscious of serving the community, which enables us to cultivate our relationships locally and give back to the town that has given us so much. He has served as President of the Monroe County Parks Board, local chapter of Keep America Beautiful, as well as the Tri-North P.T.O.  He is also active with the Bloomington North Rotary, the Bloomington Chamber of Commerce, Indiana University Varsity Club, Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, and the local chapter of the American Red Cross.

“I feel we at Nature’s Way are truly blessed to have many opportunities at our disposal that Bloomington and Monroe County possess.”
