The Future of Just Big Stuff Nursery...
Just Big Stuff Nursery takes great pride in their commitment to the community. Manny and Michelle Garcia are the proud parents of three children. Their middle child, and only daughter, was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. This disability has left her wheelchair bound, non-verbal and requiring 24/7 care. Their daughter is what inspired them to support different charities and, ultimately, start a non-profit for children with Cerebral Palsy called "Samantha's Purpose a/k/a Voices for Cerebral Palsy".
Manny is also one of the founding members of M.A.P.S. (Miami Senior High School Alumni Professional Society), with his high school buddies. Every year they provide technology packages to a select group of seniors graduating from their alma mater, Miami Senior High School.

Just Big Stuff Nursery was an idea that Jose "Manny" Garcia had in 2001 after being in the plant nursery industry since 1997, first as an account manager to the major chain stores and then as a plant broker and founder of Classical Plant Brokers.
As his clients continued to request more and more 7, 10, 15 and 25 gallon plant material he knew he had to dedicate himself to growing "JUST BIG STUFF" in order to supply his customers. Fast forward to today and Manny and Just Big Stuff Nursery are known industry-wide as one of the top large container nursery growers.

Manny is a native of Miami, Florida and a very proud graduate of Miami Senior High School. He truthfully started off in the agricultural industry with his grandfather, who owned a lawn maintenance company. He takes great pride in the fact that he started cutting grass during summer breaks to earn extra money in elementary school. In 1997, he started working as an account manager for a grower/plant nursery that supplied material to the large chain stores; such as Home Depot, Builder's Square, Lowe's, etc. Always the entrepreneur, in January, 1999 he decided it was time for him to start his own business and opened Classical Plant Brokers.
